These easy, no-bake protein balls are packed with flavor and nutrients, perfect for an on the go snack, breakfast or after school treat.
So many of you are in the throes of “back to school” chaos with new schedules, new teachers, new schools and trying to find the new “normal”. For me, having homemade snacks on hand to grab and go when needed are a great way for me to know what we’re eating. It’s a bonus to get as much bang for my buck as possible from a nutritional point of view.
Even though my children are not yet in school, I still feel like I’m in a major time crunch when it comes to making our household run. I work full time, and I have 2 little boys (2 and 4 years old), and I run this little blog as well.
The best part about these bites is that they are no-bake, and can hang out in the fridge until you need them. I put these into snack sized bags, and put them in lunch bags, or throw in my bag on the way out the door.Love this? Tweet it!
