If you are busy, and in a hurry, these protein bites will come to the rescue. They take minutes to make, and can last for up to 2-3 weeks!
If you are a new vegan or a vegan who struggles to get their protein, these bites will boost your protein intake in a very yummy way! They are very filling too, and taste amazing!
There is no processed sugar added to them, they are naturally sweet and gluten-free!
THE MAIN INGREDIENTS:
Peanut powder: Now, I quite like it! It has a lot less fat than the peanut butter, has tons more protein and is easily added to recipes for a protein boost! If you are not sure or don’t want to use peanut butter powder, you can replace it with any vegan protein powder you like.
Cocoa powder: Gives it this chocolatey taste you can’t resist!
Sunflower Seed Butter: I recently discovered sunflower seed butter and it’s absolutely amazing! If you haven’t tried it – give it a go! If you don’t have it, or can’t get a hold of it, you can add any butter you like, from almond butter, peanut butter…etc.
Walnuts: Healthy omega-3s fats, more protein, more nuttiness, just another wholesome ingredient in these bites!
Figs: To help ingredients combine and stick, plus it adds natural sweetness to these protein bites. I used semi-dried figs. But, you can use any dried fruit you like, dates will work just fine.
