Vanilla Breakfast Protein Bites

Vanilla Breakfast Protein Bites

I’m a mum to a beautiful little boy. And it’s wonderful! I love every minute of it. But I’m going to be honest – it’s time consuming. And to top it off, I have a million other things that I put under the category of ‘life’ to go along with it. It can be really easy to put everything else first and neglect ourselves. You don’t even have to be a parent. We all lead busy lives in some form and as a result, our health can often be put aside. I have noticed this with not only myself, but a lot of other people I know. We can fix that. 

I don’t know about you, but mornings are the toughest for me. They are so busy in fact, that I often don’t find the time (or completely forget) to eat. And that is why I originally created the vanilla breakfast bites. 

What surprised me the most however, is how versatile they are! They can be used as a quick and easy breakfast, an on the go snack, or to munch on after a workout. I have recently been using these a lot for a post workout snack. I add in some vanilla flavored protein which is naturally sweetened with stevia (helps with any sweet tooth cravings), which gives that little bit extra oomph. You could always use your favorite flavor (chocolate would work just as well) but be warned that you may find these a little blunt if you use unflavored protein powder.

I personally love how easy it is to store these. Find an airtight container or bag, place your protein balls in it, and pop them into the fridge for up to 72 hours. Alternatively, you can make a really big batch of them and freeze them for up to 2 months. 

Helpful hint: When storing your protein balls, divide them into serving sizes for quick and easy on-the-go snacking. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe! See you next time.
