Vanilla Protein Superfood Bites

I haven't made snack bites or snack bars in a while because I devour them with no thought whatsoever. This time I made these bites and ate them over the course of three days, which is good for me. They are high in protein, though, because I didn't use dates, I had to use more of the liquid sweetener than I wanted to but oh well. Speaking of dates, not one has passed through my lips since February. They are just too many calories to deal with and very binge-worthy for me.

I used Livwell raw protein powder for this recipe because I love the simplicity and wholeness of their ingredients. I also love that the company is based in Philly, my hometown, and that they care about the quality of their ingredients. To see my blog post about Livwell, click here and you will see how you save 10% with your purchase plus free shipping on orders over $49.

These are sooooo yum which is why it's easy to eat a few at a time. They are better, though, savored so just keep remembering that you will have way more where that came from if you eat one at a time 😃

1 pouch of Livwell vanilla protein powder
1 cup of rolled quick oats
2 tbsp of natural peanut butter
1/4 + 2 tbsp of maple syrup
2 tbsp of hemp seeds
2 tbsp of flax seeds
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts

Mix everything together by hand and roll into small balls. Refrigerate or freeze. I made about 12 bites. I put them in the fridge and by the first hour, they were firm. They are amazingly sweet but the protein powder and peanut butter kick up the protein a notch. You can use any liquid sweetener you wish. Add in chia seeds as well. If you don't have protein powder that's ok but click the links above to try some Livwell!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
