Okay, raise your hand if you want to know what the hell you’re putting in your body when eating a protein/granola bar?!  I DO.  And quite frankly sick of seeing BS on the ingredients.  So I’ve taken it upon myself to create my OWN protein bites, and guess what?  They’re even better than those processed bars (not saying I don’t eat them, from time to time)  but it’s nice to know what we’re putting in our bodies?  Not to mention, this is MUCH more affordable than those costly bars… some are $3 a bar.  That shit adds up REAL quick.  And I like to save that for my kombacha drinks.. haha.  And you guys, you put everything in a bowl, mix it up, roll into balls and done.  The most simple, yet healthy protein treats you’ll ever have.  k here are the deets.

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED

Makes 15-16 balls

DIRECTIONS

Step 1: Mix all ingredients into a medium size bowl besides almond milk.

Step 2: Add in 1/3 Cup Almond milk first.  If the mixture is to dry, add in a little more.  It should be slightly moist in order for it to form into balls, but not to wet.

Step 3: Form into about 1 inch sized balls.  The size depends on you, but I like mine enough to take 2 bites from.  

SO there you have it!  They’re the easiest to make.  Store them in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.  Oaks loves them too! It’s literally a win win for everyone.  I’m always l looking for easy, healthy and yummy treats to grab on the go.  

Let me know if you guys try them and love them!  Tag me in your post, or story!  

Have a great day!

Get ready to just love life and eat 10 of these everyday, because guess what? They are only 31 calories a ball…. YEP, thats right.  Of course I was going to figure out a way for a little pumpkin treat everyday that has the right amount of goodness and macros.  Tis the season!  Try these babies and let me know how you like them.  

What you need…

  1. 3 Tbsp Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips These are dairy, nut and soy free.
  2. 15 oz Can Organic Pumpkin Pure
  3. 1 Scoop Plant Based Vanilla Protein (I like this one)
  4. 1-1/2 Cups Quick Rolled Oats 
  5. 3 Drops Vanilla Cream Sweet Drops
  6. 3 Tsp Brown Sugar
  7. 2 Tsp Organic Pumpkin Spice 
  1. Mix Oats, protein powder, and pumpkin puree and thoroughly mix together.  Add in Brown sugar, sweet drops and chocolate chips. OR you can add the chocolate chips to each ball after they’re rolled out.
  2. Roll each ball and place in a plastic container to store in the fridge.  It’s nice to pre-make these for the week and have them all week to grab and go!  This mix should make 30 balls.  Each ball should be bite size. 

Have fun with them though!  I sometimes put a couple on top of my halo top at night. So good!
