London Vegan Bird Food: Protein Peanut Butter Bites

IMG_0442

I found myself buying a lot of protein and snack bars and so decided to start making my own to save some money and also to know exactly what goes in them.

Based on a recipe from the Tone It Up website (find it here http://toneitup.com/2013/11/featured-recipe-no-bake-peanut-butter-cookies/),  I have made this recipe quite a lot over the last few months. They’re tasty and it almost feels like a treat.  Great to have pre and post workout as a protein boost.

1 Tbs Protein Powder (I use Pulsin Pea Protein)
