Grain Free Coconut Peanut Butter Protein Bites! A rich flavor but packed with protein! These NO BAKE vegan protein bites are lower in sugar and carbs. Great for summer treats!
Ya’ll… it’s JUNE! Summer! Okay almost Summer. But when you live in Texas, it starts to feel like summer in April. We hit 93F this week, and with 95% humidity. I’m a wee bit scared of what July is going to look like. One thing is for sure, we will be eating a lot of NO bake meals and smoothies. Unless one of you northerns want to to adopt us for the summer? haha!
Okay but in all seriousness, the NO BAKE season has begun. I’m cool with it (pun intended). It means we grill often and keep plenty of ice in the freezer for smoothies and desserts/snacks like mad! Which leads me to these bites. THE JUNE flavor of the month is…
Coconut Cream Peanut Butter Bites! Hmm… how did I come up with this bite? Well, we recently bought a pint of vanilla coconut cream pint of coconut cream ice cream (this kind) to add to our summer smoothies. It makes them super creamy! Anyway, one day I was blending up a morning shake for the kiwi and myself when I realized that our peanut butter jar was about empty. Might as well throw that last little bit in the blender, right? And then I realized that that we only had a handful of coconut cereal left (this kind), might as well throw that in there too. It was basically a “let’s cram in all our leftover bits of ingredients” kind of smoothie. I didn’t think much of it, I do it ALL the time. Ya know? That was until I tasted it. Holy Moly! That’s like dessert. Maybe a combo of frozen peanut butter pie and coconut cream pie combined into one. Um, ya, that kind.
This flavor stuck in my head. It was too good! Too good not to make into a bite, right? It’s rich, it’s creamy, and it’s UBER satisfying without the excess sugar and unhealthy carbs. Ya, you’re gonna want to make these a repeat recipe this summer. Meaning, make, eat, repeat. Haha!
