Healthy snacks loaded with protein
Protein is an important part of a healthy diet because it provides a long lasting energy source for your body. The energy protein provides is long lasting because protein takes longer than carbohydrates to break down in the body. The result is more energy and a feeling of being fuller longer.
These No Bake Energy Bites are loaded with protein. Nut butter and protein powder combine for a healthy snack that your family will love. I protein powder I used is the Sweet Vanilla Bean powder from Orgain. I was first introduced to Orgain and their products in California last year. I’ve been using their protein powder ever since because it has a smooth texture and is really good in shakes as well as these snack bites.
Many protein powders available today are made with soy. I, personally, try to avoid soy products, so I love that Orgain protein powders are made with organic, plant-based proteins; Organic brown rice, hemp, chia, and pea.
