Hello, Protein Snack Bites

Hello, Protein Snack BitesSummertime snacks are a big thing in my house. We’re on the go and adventuring every awesome day and my on-the-go snack game has to be dialed. For the sake of the whole family. Lately, I’ve been relying huge on 2 things: 1) hardboiled eggs and 2) these little, homemade snacks that my kids call “those balls”. (I may or may not have a straight face right now.)

“Those balls”, which I will henceforth call “Protein Snack Bites”, are loaded with fat, protein, superfoods and some chocolate, for good measure. We all love the taste and I love that it actually provides good energy between meals. The ingredient list is simple and the process doesn’t require lots of chopping or prep. And the key to adding a boost of superfoods is using Amazing Grass’s Protein SuperFood. Amazing Grass Protein SuperFood contains a unique blend of USDA Organic pea, hemp, chia and quinoa, delivering 20g of complete plant-based protein per serving plus 7 alkalizing organic greens and two-full servings of wholesome fruits and vegetables. plant-based protein, farm fresh greens and nutrient-dense fruits and veggies. It’s vegan, non-GMO and gluten free. A great match for those of use who are looking for a high quality, plant-based protein powder.

The trouble I have is keeping the freezer stocked with them. They go quickly, so it’s a good thing they’re easy to whip up.

Ingredients:

Process:

  1. Combine these ingredients in a powerful blender or food processor (I use my Vitamix): garbanzo beans, agave, maple syrup and vanilla. It’s pretty thick, so stop the blender every so often and stir the contents up.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and add in the protein powder. Stir until combined well.
  3. Add in the peanut butter and stir.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips and mix it up.
  5. Using your hands, create little balls with the dough. The size is up to you. I prefer to make small, snack sizes that take 3-5 bites to eat. And at that size, the recipe yielded 20 balls.
  6. Stick in freezer and store there until you’re ready to eat.
