When you need a quick fix after your workout or in the middle of the day, then look no more. These protein bites are loaded with protein, healthy carbs, a little bit of healthy fat and some low glycemic sweetner to help with maintaining energy.

Made with chocolate vegan protein powder (I used Hemp powder), these little guys are free from dairy and eggs making them safe for anyone with those food allergies. They are also nut free which is an extra bonus, although you can totally substitute almond butter in place of the sunbutter if that is not an issue.  AND, these are also gluten free!  So basically these are your new best friend, or as my child would say, your new BESIE!


Feel free to mix and match ingredients along the way to make them yours.

  • Don’t have Hemp powder? That’s ok, any plant based chocolate powder will work (Vega‘s is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G too)
  • Wanna try another nut/seed butter?  Sure, why not.
  • Don’t have any Brown Rice Syrup on hand either? Try using agave nectar OR Grade B Maple Syrup this time THEN order some Brown Rice Syrup for next time (you’ll thank me later)
  • Want more chocolate flavor?  So do I!  Add in a 1-2 TB of cacoa powder, throw in some cacao nibs or maybe some Enjoy Life chocolate chips just because you can.
  • Sprinkles?????  Well, those are optional but don’t they look more fun?
