Back in April I shared my very favorite, super easy, go-to dessert / snack recipe, Protein Bites. It was a hit! By hit, I mean I had more people actually stop me or mention on social media either 1) how they could not wait to make them or 2) how they trusted me, tried the recipe and are now hooked.
Recently when all the ingredients were out and sprawled across my kitchen counter, I decided to experiment.
The result? Sweet and Salty Protein Bites! A new spin on a classic. Actually, I think they may rival the classic.
SWEET AND SALTY PROTEIN BITES
