Salted Caramel Crunch Protein Bites

Once again, I’m making little dessert bites. I love portable, bite-sized snacks that you can eat anywhere or when you just need a little something sweet (see my recipes for other bite-sized treats here, here, and here). I’ve been really busy lately, so these will be perfect to take with me on long days so I don’t go hungry! I topped the bites with Blue Diamond Salted Caramel Almonds for a little crunch. The salted caramel flavor is so yummy and gives the bites a little added sweetness too. The bites will keep in the fridge and can probably be frozen too….although mine have never lasted that long. 🙂

Salted Caramel Crunch Protein Bites

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • about 21 Blue Diamond Salted Caramel Almonds (1 per bite)

Directions:

1.) In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients except the almonds. Mix together until well blended. Put bowl in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to harden the “dough” (feel free to eat some, too).

2.) After 30 minutes, roll the dough into small, golf-ball sized balls. Put onto a plate or container with a lid. Top each bite with one salted caramel almond, refrigerate, and enjoy!
