UpDATEd Peanut Butter Protein Date Bites

Peanut Butter Protein Date Bites

If you are looking for a sweet treat to bring to Sunday's game, these are them!

This is an upDATEd version of last years football date bites, and this time they have double the protein thanks to this hack from Cassy Joy. I’ve been making date footballs now for about 5 years. They are the perfect Super Bowl sweet treat without the refined sugar, but when I saw my friend mix her nut butter with my Be Well by Kelly Vanilla Protein Powder I was blown away!
