Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bites

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bites

This week I was looking to make something sweet, a snack for the kids that wasn't something processed from the food store. I wanted something quick to eat after a workout just in case I had no time to prepare a meal but needed to get some protein. Here it is, not only are these loaded with protein, they are very yummy!

I noticed most of the recipes for these different protein bites have a lot of peanut butter in them, this one is better. It doesn't have a lot and I used almond butter. I suppose you could add any kind of nut butter you wanted. I encourage you to switch it up and see which one you like best!

What Do You Need?

½ cup of vanilla protein powder (I used Garden of Life Organic Plant Based Protein Powder)

3 1/2 tbsp of almond milk

2 tbsp maple syrup

4 tbsp of almond butter or whatever nut butter you choose.

¾ cup of almond flour, fine

3 tbsp of vegan chocolate chips

1 tsp of vanilla

 

What You Need To Do?

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix on medium speed until combined. Don't have a mixer? No worries this is easily mixed by hand, just make sure its combined well.

Roll about 1 heaping tsp into a ball or make it whatever size you want. Can also roll in more chocolate chips, coconut flakes, chopped walnuts, whatever sounds good to you. I rolled mine in more chocolate chips because that's what I was in the mood for. Definitely chill these in the fridge, they tasted better cold.

These disappeared quickly in my house, next time I'll make a double batch!
