This no Bake Peanut Butter Protein Bite recipe makes a quick, easy, and healthy snack with just four ingredients! #paleo

I have a full-blown peanut butter addiction. Before I figured out that peanuts were contributing to my migraines, I was known to eat it by the ooey gooey spoonful. Now, I limit my consumption to a serving a day, eaten only during the one week of the month I’m certain I won’t get a migraine. And where’s the fun in that? 

I decided to make that single serving more nutritious and enjoyable, and thus my no bake Peanut Butter Protein Bites were born! With skin- and gut-loving collagen, the natural sweetness of raw honey, and a crunchy coating of chopped nuts, these healthy snacks are a satisfying, nourishing treat!

The collagen : peanut butter ratio is the glue that binds these protein balls, so I don’t suggest playing with those two ingredients. What you could do instead is add to their texture by mixing in:

  • Cacao nibs

  • Shredded coconut

  • Dried fruit

  • Chocolate chips

And vegans, you can also sub maple syrup for the honey on a 1:1 basis. There’s no need to compromise your values to experience this deliciousness!
