These are fabulous protein packed little bites. Ideal as a healthy snack and a great post workout recovery fuel. If you’re craving something sweet then reach for one of these little treats instead of a chocolate bar. You can keep the sugar content down by using stevia or xylitol to sweet. Vary the flavours too. I used raw cacao to make chocolate bites but you could leave this out and add vanilla extract or almond extract instead.
Difficulty – Easy
