SUPER EASY PROTEIN BITES

There is nothing that makes my growling tummy happier than these energy packed bites of goodness and deliciousness. They are so easy to make.   No need to turn your oven on or take out your food processor, which makes them ideal for anyone to whip up.   Just roll and refrigerate or freeze.  It’s one of my favourite “make now and eat later” recipes!  I highly suggest giving them a try, but I must warn you they are addictive.
