It is nice to have a healthy snack on hand after a workout or to hold you over between meals. Quick and easy to make, these protein bites fit the bill. They have plenty of protein and good fat to keep you satisfied. The honey and chocolate chips add just the right amount of sweetness too. I also love the crunch of the puffed quinoa. (I buy my puffed quinoa from nuts.com.) Enjoy!
