Lemon Ginger Protein Bites

If you've been following along with She Well for the past few months, you've probably noticed that I've been on a bit of a homemade protein bar kick. 

It all started over the summer when I realized I was spending close to $40 a month on protein bars. As someone who is always on-the-go and likes to carry healthy sustenance at all times, I knew I needed to find a way to remedy this.

So I created my own.

Inspired by the bars I love so much, I started a protein bar series where I release a new flavor each month.

Since last month’s chocolate peppermint protein bites were such a hit, I decided to deviate from the bars and make these easy no-bake freezer bites!

This month’s flavor? Lemon Ginger!

I don’t have much to say about these bad boys other than that they are truly delicious (and nutritious!) Both lemon and raw ginger are chock-full of vitamins and minerals - perfect for keeping good health this winter and illness at bay! 

Can’t wait to hear what you think!

Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients
1 cup creamy almond butter at room temp. (I used Barney Butter
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (I like Olly)
1/4 cup honey (or agave) 
2 tablespoons filtered water
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced

Directions
1. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Once the batter has formed, chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes

2. Roll the chilled dough into individual balls and store in the freezer.

* If you wish to take these on-the-go, I recommend baking them into bars. These balls will not stay intact if you take them out of the freezer. You can find directions for that here
