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.
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?
