I’m obsessed with these Cinnamon and Almond Butter Protein Bites at the moment and I’m excited to share this recipe with you!
I was sent some protein powder from that protein to review, and I have to admit I was sceptical. I actually really love the idea of protein powders to add to smoothies because protein really fills you up, + gives you an energy boost. But, I have tried some unflavored vegan proteins in the past that really tasted awful and I never wanted to buy any ever again.
That being said, I loved trying that protein. that protein is a really clean source of protein. It’s organic, plant based, cold-pressed, and free from added sugars and sweeteners, dairy and GMO, and it actually tastes good!
The Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder with Chia Seeds is a dream! Two tablespoons of protein powder has 11 grams of protein. It's also packed with vitamins and minerals, such as phosphorous, manganese, magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, and Vitamin K from pumpkin seeds, and is a good source of fibre and omega-3 from chia seeds.
I also think it's fairly affordable for such a good quality plant-based protein (£12.99 for 250g) and I will definitely be buying it again and again. I have also tried that protein's Hemp Protein Powder with Baobab, but I personally prefer the taste and texture of the Pumpkin Seed and Chia blend.
I created these cinnamon and almond butter protein bites as a great on-the-go snack that could be made in advance and travels well. Because this is rich in protein, it's a great pre-workout snack to fuel your body for exercise. They are so delicious, packed with protein and are also really filling! I added cacao nibs for added flavor and crunch, and they are also high in minerals such as magnesium, iron, and potassium.
Cinnamon and Almond Butter Protein Bites:
4 tbs. that protein I Heart Pumpkin and Chia Seed Super Protein
2 tbs. almond butter
2 tsp. cacao nibs
2 tsp. honey
½ tsp. cinnamon
Combine ingredients in a blender, and blend until everything is mixed well.
Use a spoon to scoop out the mixture into equal parts, and roll into protein bites of your desired size with the palm of your hands. I made four large protein bites.
Store in the fridge for up to a week.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
