These bite-sized protein bites are deliciously sweet, and contain no added sugar! Their sweetness comes effortlessly from nature’s candy; Dates! Each snack bite is made with natural ingredients that are packed with fiber and protein. Perfect for a low-cal, high protein snack to fuel your workout, or boost your energy levels during the day.

  • 3 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend together
  2. Roll dough into 22 bite sized balls.
  3. Store in the refrigerator in a Tupperware for up to 1 week.
