When you’re eating healthy, one of the toughest things is snacking. It’s tough to find something that’s loaded with protein and easy to take on-the-go, especially if you’re craving a sweet snack. These EASY Cinnamon Crunch Protein Bites are here to save the day! Make them in about 10 minutes and keep them in the fridge for an easy grab-and-go snack!
TBH, my snacking these days hasn’t been something to brag about. Between making recipes for the blog and, well, LIFE, I find myself reaching for a sugary bowl of cereal (hello, delicious, sweet, empty carbs) or tortilla chips (equally as delicious and empty).
Even though I know I could be downing Matcha Chia Seed Energy Bites or Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars instead, the cereal and chips thing has been this strange comfort zone for me these last couple of weeks.
As it turns out, there are many great and healthy snacks beyond my snacking comfort zone, and I recently decided to go the distance and search it out (and by distance, I mean to the grocery store that I can literally see outside of my window and to the GNC down the street for my new favorite protein powder). I’ve recently discovered SO many low maintenance options, and I’m making these new snacks my comfort zone by being intentional about snacking!
Thankfully, these EASY Cinnamon Crunch Protein Bites make healthy snacking a breeze!
These delicious bites were initially inspired by the new Quest Cinnamon Crunch Protein Powder sachets at GNC. Well, they’re new to me! 😉 I’ve been a major fan of Quest for a long time (ummm hello, have you tried their protein bars?? OMG), so I was SUPER excited to see their protein powders in so many flavors and easy-to-use packets at my local GNC! And this cinnamon crunch flavor sounded right in every way for these protein bites. It takes them to the NEXT LEVEL, y’all!
If you’re looking for a great protein powder that actually tastes amazing and is loaded with good things (20g of protein, people!), I’m loving Quest Cinnamon Crunch Protein Powder right now. You can buy it at your local GNC, along with several other amazing flavors!
Guys, these EASY Cinnamon Crunch Protein Bites are seriously my new fave. No more snacking comfort zone, can I get an Amen? Or maybe I’ve just added these to my snacking comfort zone collection. Either way, they’re amazingly delicious, they kind of basically taste like cinnamon cookie dough, and they’re loaded with protein. Wins in all directions! 🙂
