No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Bites

Rated as 4.81 out of 5 Stars

"I have been looking for a long time for a protein bar, or at least something close, that didn't taste either flat or just plain-old bad. I tweaked this one to get around my tree-nut allergies and finally have the recipe I'd been seeking! These are yummy, and my teenage daughter even likes them! Store refrigerated."

Great option to get a boost of protein if you are tired of protein shakes. Used chocolate powder in place of the vanilla to boost the chocolate factor.

used walnuts instead of chocolate chips, almond milk, and almond butter instead of peanut butter. Super easy and fast to make and tastes great.
