Grab and go food is essential in the busy world we live in- whether it’s one of the main meals or a snack, the majority of us are eating out of the house at some point!

So when I am rushing my kids out the door from school to activities I like to have healthy portable snacks they can grab, like these Cinnamon Vanilla Protein Bites.

All you need is a food processor to make them- dump everything in and give it a whirl.

And if you are anything like me and think protein powder is yucky, you need to try Arbonne‘s vegan protein powder. I never met a protein powder I liked…until now.

This plant based protein powder is my favorite because it tastes amazing, and is free from whey and gluten so it’s very easy to digest. It isn’t gritty or weird tasting, there are no artificial sweeteners or other added junk.

Since we use it in our smoothies or after-soccer fuel for my kiddo, I always have it in the house and like to incorporate it into my these protein bites.

I love all the wholesome ingredients- oats, almond butter, cinnamon, almonds and vanilla. They are sweetened with raw honey, but to make them vegan just sub some pure maple syrup.

Spring is a busy season full of activities so I try to keep a rotation of energy bites in the fridge.

Have you noticed a theme? I used to call them energy balls and my son and husband vetoed the name so moving forward I will call them energy or protein BITES. Ha.
