I don’t know about you, but I have a sweet tooth. You could say that I’m a sweetetarian.
One of my big goals this year is to get more protein into my diet and I’m having fun finding sweet ways to include it (pun intended).
Have you heard of OWYN? They make protein powder and ready made protein drinks. It’s plant based, has 20g. of protein per scoop, and it taste incredible.
It’s honestly one of the best gluten-free, plant-based protein powders I’ve ever tried (even when I could drink whey protien drinks). It’s smooth, and creamy, even with water.
Which is hard to find because most plant based protien powders I’ve tried still have a little grit to them.
We’re into making high protein snacks, and if they’re sweet I can get my kids to take them in their lunches.
As soon as I tried the OWYN Matcha Tea flavored protein powder I knew that I wanted to make Match Tea Protein Bites.
These Matcha Tea Protein Bites only have four ingredients in them, and they are all healthy, clean ingredients.
If you’d like to make these lower in carbs, simply replace the maple syrup with a sugar-free sticky sweetner. There are loads of recipes for sugar-free simple syrup online.
My friend Maya, at Wholesome yum has a recipe for Sugar Free Maple Syrup, if you’re interested.
This recipe makes 12 yummy Matcha Tea Protein Bites. You store them in the refrigerator, or the freezer.
You can double or triple this recipe if you’d like.
A lot of protein bites are dry, and crumble when you bite into them. The ingredients in these Matcha Tea Protein Bites are perfectly balanced so they stay fresh in the refrigerator without drying out.
Just remember to spoon the almond flour into the measuring cup and don’t pack it in, otherwise it will absorb too much of the wet ingredients.
I hope you’ll check out OWYN and make these Matcha Tea Protein Bites (or use OWYN Vanilla Flavored Protein Powder if you’re not a Matcha fan).
