4-Ingredient Blueberry Muffin Protein Bites


Lately, I have been very bad about writing down my new recipes right away, and, consequently, have been forgetting them before I get a chance to do so.  Ohh I hate that!  So this one I got down right away.  And yes, I realize that's what I should always do.  But who said I always do what I should?  Hmm, could that be where the girls get that trait from?  No, of course not, they must get that from Adam.

These are super simple to make and delicious.  My intent was to make a healthy, high protein snack to have around, and one without nuts, so that they could be packed into the girls lunches.  I am thrilled to say that the girls love these, so they are definitely a success in my book.

If you can't find or don't like dried blueberries, you could add cranberries or another dried fruit, or sugar-free chocolate chips, if you prefer.  Make sure you use a protein powder that tastes good!

4-Ingredient Blueberry Muffin Protein Bites

1/3 cup coconut oil, softened
1/2 cup vegan, stevia-sweetened vanilla protein powder
1 cup oat flour (gluten-free, if necessary)
1/4 cup dried blueberries

Pulse together oil, protein powder and oat flour in food processor until well combined.  Stir in blueberries.  Roll into small balls and refrigerate until firm.  Keep for up to 2 weeks in an air tight container.  Makes 18 balls.
