Four Ingredient Protein Bites

Protein balls (or bites, whatever you choose to call them) are another protein product hitting the shelves in Australia. It's easy to buy them for a quick snack, but when you look at the price and the long list of ingredients, you begin to wonder if they're really all that good for you and your hip pocket. 

Making protein bites, or any food for that matter, doesn't have to involve a tonne of ingredients. Case in point, these homemade protein bites. 
I just couldn't wait, I had to take a bite.

With every mouthful you can savour the simplicity and natural goodness of each ingredient. There's a good balance of carbs, fat and protein which make these a perfect pre or post-workout snack, or even something to munch on at work. 

At only 75 cents per serve (2 balls/bites), there's no denying that these are far more inexpensive than those at the supermarket.
