Raw Green Kingdom Energy Bites

Green Kingdom Bites

When I am running a lot, I tend to need a little extra protein.   Although throwing it into a smoothie or just dissolving it in water is fine, sometimes I like to add it to tasty little snacks or treats so I can enjoy my snack and get quick protein as well.  Green Kingdom Epic Protein  Powder by Sprout Living is hands down the best tasting protein I have had, and I recently I decided to use it in a snack that I could grab quick and enjoy, some energy bites.  Many health food stores sell energy bites but I like to make my own, because they are super easy to make and so they can include the exact ingredients I want.

The ones I made last week were rich in omega 3 oils, including walnuts, hemp seeds, and chia seeds.  With just dates to sweeten, which I love.  The Green Kingdom Protein Powder not only gives the bites extra protein, but includes greens as well and gives them a wonderful flavor.

I have been enjoying these for a snack for the last week in the afternoons, and I have to say they keep me from reaching for the candy because they are just sweet enough to satisfy that craving.  Don't get me wrong, I love my raw chocolates but when I need a protein boost, they fall short so these are perfect for my sweet craving and protein needs!

    Loved it! Do you think any other protein powder could work? I have some pure pea protein at home... Cheers!

      Yes, but it might effect the flavor. The one I had was sweeter so if yours is not, you may want to add a few more dates or a dash of stevia with it.
