OMG!! These no bake peanut butter protein bites are amazing! They are so easy to put together and a healthy snack to grab at any time of the day. My kids love to eat a couple of these as they head out to a sports practice or game. I love to eat one around 2pm for a quick pick me up. lol. They are so delicious and packed with protein, dietary fiber, magnesium, vitamin E, omega-3 fats, and lignans. (which help to reduce cancer risk)
I always have these in my refrigerator and they are a huge hit with my whole family!
