These little protein balls are so darn good and make a perfect little treat! They have a hint of pumpkin and are rolled in bee pollen! Not only does the bee pollen add some great nutritious benefits but it compliments the pumpkin flavor just right! So, go ahead and make a batch (or two!) of these Pumpkin Peanut Butter Protein Bites and enjoy!
Benefits of Bee Pollen
I’ve been taking bee pollen religiously because it’s got so many great benefits. I usually top my nightly yogurt or ice cream bowl with it. I wanted to roll these little guys in something nutritious instead of my usual chocolate and bee pollen worked perfect!
These little bites are easy and quick to put together and can be stored in the fridge or freezer depending on how quickly you’re going to eat them. Once you’ve got them rolled, pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes so that they will hold well while rolling in the bee pollen. Once I’ve rolled them in my topping, I put them in a little container and have them as a nightly treat or snack before I hit the gym. They give me a little energy boost and keep my cravings to a minimum. If you like pumpkin and peanut butter, then these pumpkin peanut butter protein bites will be a staple!
Next time I make these I think I’m going to dip them in chocolate and then roll them in bee pollen. Make sure to tag me if you make them.Print
