Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Since we are all focused on getting healthier this year, I want to share one of my favorite healthy snack recipes with you today!  The other afternoon, I was on a ‘cooking spree’ and I really wanted to bake some peanut butter cookies. I am a HUGE peanut butter fan. Unfortunately, peanut butter cookies aren’t considered a healthy snack…but they are one of my favorite foods! These peanut butter protein bites are a great alternative to peanut butter cookies, and they are healthy! 

Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Servings 15

Note: Ground Flaxseed can be difficult to find in the grocery store-I purchase ours from Amazon (affiliate link below)

What is the estimated calorie count on these? I am trying to find a recipe that isn't so high in calories. This one should be lower since there are no added chocolate chips and other sugars that I've seen in some.

I know its not related to your recipe but those hydrangeas look so pretty! They're pretty much my favorite flower! I can't wait for mine to bloom out this spring :)
