Protein Packed Energy Bites

I have a new snack recipe for you!   Protein Packed Energy Bites.  These Protein Packed Energy Bites get a lot of their protein from quinoa.  Quinoa is one of the only complete plant based proteins.  In addition to the quinoa, I have also added some seeds.  These healthy energy bites are healthy and super easy to make.  They would make a great pre or post workout snack.

Protein Packed Energy Bites

These energy bites are vegan and gluten free.  I used quinoa flakes which are similar to quick oats in texture.  If you didn’t want to use the quinoa flakes, you can probably use quick oats in their place.  Nuts may also be a good sub for those that are grain free.  If you like energy bites, you may also like my grain free energy bites or my 3 ingredient energy bites.

Creamy Mushroom Zucchini Pasta

Sometimes the greatest meals come about when you are trying to use up leftovers.  That is exactly what happened with this Creamy Mushroom Zucchini Pasta.  Have you tried zucchini pasta?  It’s so good and much lower in carbs.  I use my Spiralizer to make my zucchini pasta.  I just love that thing!  You can make pasta out of all kinds of veggies.  I have made pasta from sweet potatoes, beets and cucumbers so far.  So good!

I went a little overboard on the sauce with mine. :)  However, I decreased it in the recipe, so you shouldn’t have the same issue.  Either way this is delish!  This is a super easy recipe that only takes a few minutes to make.  If you wanted to boost the protein, you can add in whatever protein you like.
