Protein bites: easy, healthy, high energy snack

After working out, I get extremely hungry and this is my favorite protein-filled, quick snack that can be prepared beforehand.  I like this recipe because it’s SO simple, requires little prep time, no cooking time and you can add in sweets (like chocolate chips) or salty (almonds, nuts, etc). In addition to protein, it has flaxseed which has shown evidence of reducing heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes. Flaxseed also comes as ‘ground flaxseed‘ if you prefer it less seedy. I usually double or triple the recipe because we go through them so fast!

    1. I get the whole flaxseeds which are like the size of sesame seeds at just any grocery store. The kids do like them! I like this recipe because you can add a variety of items depending on preferences.

    1. Ha ha! Depending on what you add in (chocolate chips, nuts, etc) 1 will be approximately 130 calories, 6 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein.
