Gingerbread Protein Bites

Do you ever wonder why you crave something sweet in the afternoon? Ever reach for the stale cookies and dry doughnuts at the office, only to be hungry 10 minutes later? Yeah, I get that. I also suffer from the mid afternoon slump. Don't worry, I've also found that eating a snack that is satisfying in both nutrition and taste can power me through the afternoon. I love this recipe for Gingerbread Protein Bites - they are delicious and don't require any special equipment!




Snacks are funny things. We never learned what to snack on - and I am often asked "what's a good snack to have" - well my friends, the perfect snack is one that is nourishing, and will satisfy you.

  • Nourishing: One that will keep you full until your next meal, usually a source of at least 2/3 of the following: protein, fat, and fibre. These will also help decrease spikes in your blood sugars. Double win!

  • Satisfying: One that doesn't make you feel like you are compromising, and one that feeds your love for food! No, you don't have to be banished to rice cakes (unless you love em). Satisfying like these little bites filled with warm spices.

Oh, and being super convenient doesn't hurt either.
