What ingredients do I need to make these protein bites?

  • Old fashioned 100% whole grain oats-I don’t recommend using quick oats. They don’t have the same texture like the old fashioned oats do.
  • Protein powder- I like to use Devotion Protein Powder– The Angel Food Cake Devotion Protein Powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Low point peanut butter 
  • Honey
  • Almond or vanilla extract
  • Lily’s (no sugar added) Dark Chocolate Chip )
  • Unsweetened coconut (optional, points are the same with or without it)
  • Unsweetened almond milk

What low point peanut or nut butter do you recommend?

Well, my two favorite whipped peanut butters Jif Whips and Peter Pan 1/3 less fat whipped have both been discontinued-but I have since found a few other brands that I LOVE!

This Better’n Peanut Butter Peanut Butter is only 100 calories, 3 smartpoints for 2 Tablespoons, 4 grams of protein, and is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Palm Oil Free, and Kosher.

You can find it online on Amazon HERE.

 

 

The other brand I LOVE and RECOMMEND is American Dream Nut Butters. These nut butters are low in points and are amazing!!  I have loved the every flavor!

What’s your “go to” peanut butter now that Jif Whips is unavailabile? I have scanned a bunch of them, and it seems like everything scans for six points for 2 tablespoons. (Purple) Does it matter which one of those I choose?

I LOVE these bites and have even sent them to my kids in college.

Thx for all you do!

Another brand that I love is called American Dream Nut Butter They are low in points most of them are 5 points for 2 Tablespoons.

Thanks so much!
