Fudge Brownie Protein Bites

Okay, so here’s my thing. About 4pm I start getting a little hangry. I can usually stave off hunger with some fruit, but at this point if I don’t have anything healthy at the ready, I’m going straight for the chocolate. Can you relate? Four pm seems to be my witching hour – I’ve usually done a pretty good job with making healthy food choices up until this point. However, I’ve had many, many days where things go completely off the rails because I give in to my sweet tooth. I’m come up with a plan-of-attack; these Fudge Brownie Protein Bites.

These Protein Bites are the ultimate healthy snack!

I knew that when having some pre-made snacks on hand, I could make a much better choice when it came to having something sweet. These chocolate protein bites are the perfect option. Each bite has 8.25 grams of protein, and tastes like brownies – seriously, it’s the best of both worlds! A serving is 2 bites, therefore you’ll giving yourself 16.5 grams of protein – which makes for a really smart snack option. What makes these even smarter is that they’re grain-free, gluten-free, low-carb and Paleo-friendly. If you want to make these truly Paleo, omit the chocolate chips. You’ll still get the great chocolate flavor in each bite.

How to make these chocolate protein bites

These couldn’t be easier to make. Simple add all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl, with the exception of the water. Stir together, then gradually add in the water 1 tablespoon at a time. The dough will begin to come together and become slightly sticky.

From here, use a cookie scoop or tablespoon(measuring spoon), and scoop out the protein bites. Then, using your hands, roll into balls. I then place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with plastic wrap (you can also use waxed or parchment paper) to prevent them from sticking to the pan. Refrigerate or freeze until the bites are firm – at least 1 hour. I then place 2 bites (1 serving) in individual snack-sized freezer bags, then place in the freezer. You can also place in an air-tight container and refrigerate or freeze if that’s what works better for you.

Ingredients

  • 4 scoops chocolate protein powder (4 servings)
  • 1/2 c. almond meal/flour
  • 2 Tbsp. cacao powder (you can also use cocoa powder)
  • 2 Tbsp. nut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 3-4 Tbsp. water
  • 1/3 c. chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl add the protein powder, almond meal, cacao powder, nut butter and maple syrup. Stir to combine ingredients, gradually add the water 1 tablespoon at a time. As the water is added, the ingredients will become thicker and slightly sticky. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  2. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon/measuring spoon, roll into 1" balls using your hands. Place on cookie sheet, and refrigerate or freeze for 1 hour for bites to become firm.
  3. Place in resealable container or plastic bags. Refrigerate or freeze and take out when ready to enjoy.

Notes

The protein content per serving will be contingent on the protein powder and type of nut butter that you use. The protein powder that I used is 20g per serving (80g total for the recipe, and the nut butter is 7g. With the almond meal, the total protein is 99g, divided by 12 = 8.25g protein per bite, or 16.5g protein per serving.
