Peanut butter protein bites are packed full of protein and fiber! They include ingredients such as peanut butter, oats, and flax seeds. Not only does the peanut butter make these bites taste delicious, it provides an amazing source of protein and healthy fats. Also, the flax seeds and oats have a ton of fiber! These protein bites also have chocolate chips, honey and raisins for the perfect amount of sweet.
They are also the perfect sweet treat in a school lunch and kid-friendly snack! When my kids get home from school in the afternoon, they are always super hungry. These are packed with protein and vitamins so I don’t feel guilty giving them to my kids. In addition to being full of good ingredients, they taste amazing which means my kids will love them!
These peanut butter protein bites are so easy to make, and most of the ingredients you probably already have on hand! Just measure the ingredients (doesn’t have to be exact) and combine. Easy as that! They also don’t require any baking.
Another great thing about these is that they are extremely versatile! I love chocolate chips and raisins, but you can add whatever your family loves! Coconut flakes, peanuts, walnuts, dark chocolate or white chocolate chips are just a few of the things you can add.
