A few years ago, when my husband prepared for a week long hunting trip, I was in search of some recipes that would travel well for him and his group. At that time, I came across this recipe. These intrigued me because they seemed like a good alternative to store-bought granola bars. I will also admit that the ease of this recipe called my name.
Apparently, the container of Protein Bites (what I like to call them) never even made it to their hunting cabin. So, much for them replacing the granola bars! They were downed along the way. Therefore, I like to think that means they were well received!
I have made these each year for the guys trip, for various occasions and even for ” just because” moments, like tonight. Combining peanut butter, honey and chocolate is all you need to say to get my attention. Guarantee a sweet treat that takes minutes, yes, minutes to make, and why would anyone ignore such a recipe?
