I have just gotten done making these Blueberry Ginger Protein Bites for the kids that are starting school this coming Wednesday. I wanted to make something that would keep them satisfied for a while during the morning so since these are also easy to pack, I thought they would be the perfect snack.
These Blueberry Ginger Protein Bites are also really easy to make. From start to finish you will be done in just 15 minutes since all the ingredients are added to the food processor and mixed until you obtain a mixture that holds together. No complicated baking skills required!
Besides these bites being easy, these are also gluten free and vegan. Making things of this nature allows me to have access to healthy items to have on the go. These are perfect to grab when I don’t have time to have breakfast, and I have to run out the door.
Instead of using eggs, I used Santa Cruz Organic Apple Sauce Cups. This way it keeps the bites vegan, and you don’t have to worry about keeping them out of the fridge when you store them. They will keep in the counter in an airtight container for up to one week.
You can also boost your kids’ lunch boxes this back-to-school season with delicious, easy-to-pack items like Santa Cruz Organic Apple Sauce Cups. They are available in classic Apple and Cinnamon Apple.
To also increase the protein content of these Blueberry Ginger Protein Bites, I used Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter. You can also find inspiration for the perfect PB&J with Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Peanut Butters. They taste great!
Take the stress out of after-school snacking with products your kids will love and ingredients you can feel good about from Santa Cruz Organic.
Another awesome thing about these Blueberry Ginger Protein Bites is that they are extremely versatile. You can substitute any type of dried fruit or nuts you like. I have made these before using other combo of ingredients and they work really well. Try your favorite mixes.
If you are looking for a new snack this back-to-school season look no further. These Blueberry Ginger Protein Bites are the perfect solution.
