Cranberry Walnut Protein Bites – A Quick and Easy Snack

Convenience makes choosing healthy snacks so much easier and more likely to happen. This is why I love making easy recipes to help me with my goals. Today I’ll be sharing my recipe for no-bake cranberry walnut protein bites. Being quick to make, these little bites are perfect for a healthy snack.

I make my protein bites with dried Cranberries (my favourite dried fruit), walnuts, vanilla extract and a bit of pumpkin pie spice. These bites take about 10 minutes to prep, and a half hour for chilling. Also, this recipe makes 12 bites, and can be multiplied as necessary.

Warning: This recipe is not suitable for people with peanut allergies!

  3. Place the bowl with the mixture in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.

  5. Lastly, enjoy! Keep the cranberry walnut protein bites in the fridge for up to 1 week.

That’s it! The simplest recipe I make, but still super delicious and healthy. If you’re lacking certain ingredients it’s easy to swap some out for something else. The peanut butter can be cashew or almond butter, and if you don’t have cranberries or walnuts, use raisins or pecans. Chocolate chips can be substituted if you want to make these a bit sweeter.

I hope you all enjoy the recipe, and didn’t spill honey on the floor accidentally like I did :/

    These sound like a good idea. I don’t like nuts so I would like to make some without.
