Gluten Free Protein Bites

Last week I wrote this short blog post discussing how to up your protein intake and why it is important. Almost immediately after, I  saw a friend post a picture of some protein bites that she had made and I got to thinking how much I miss the bites from t.Loft back home. So, I set off to make my own. I got almost everything from Trader Joe’s. This recipe is super easy and only takes a few minutes.

These bites are no bake, so once you’re done mixing all the ingredients in a bowl, just scoop some out to make little balls. Place them in an airtight storage container and place in the refrigerator. Enjoy pre/post workout or during a hike.
