Are you looking for the perfect protein packed snacks for back to school? Homemade No Bake Energy Bites are the perfect choice! I made this recipe and my husband and son loved them (I did too)! They are an easy no bake treat with only 5 ingredients and best of all they are healthy and packed full of protein! With school on the horizon and soccer practice that starts today we are soon to be on the go and busy, busy, busy. With that I need a healthy and protein packed snack that I can feed to Peyton while we are on the go. These Homemade No Bake Energy Bites are the perfect solution! A perfect in-between snack to keep you satisfied or a nice treat at the end of a long day.
Of course when you eat them you are going to need a beverage to go with! Shamrock Farms recently launched their single serve protein-packed regular, chocolate and strawberry milk in Walmart’s nationwide. Shamrock Farms is made without high fructose corn syrup and packed full of protein. Don’t forget that milk is the powerhouse of all beverages. In fact, it’s America’s No. 1 source of calcium, potassium and vitamin D. Pretty impressive huh? With every single serving of Shamrock Farms mmmmilk, you get the nine essential nutrients your body needs to function efficiently through a busy day. Peyton LOVED the Shamrock Farms single serve milk and I will be stockpiling it for him.
