4 Ingredient PB Protein Bites

I started making PB protein bites earlier this year and I am kind of obsessed with them.  They are so easy to make and are a great on-the-go snack too.  I have altered the recipe a few times to make them a little healthier and I love what they have become. If you’re into high-fat low-carb, these bites make for a great snack that is sure to satisfy a sweet tooth.  I’ll often eat 1
