Breakfast

Chocolate Cherry Protein Bites

These have been a staple in my diet forever. It never occurred to me to actually SHARE this recipe! I typically eat these in the afternoon when I need a quick pick-me up to get through the 3:00 slump. They’re also a great pre-workout snack as they have both carbs and protein. Plants for the win!
