I love how snackable and convenient protein bites are—but after a bit of recipe research I couldn't find any that weren't loaded with sugar. And though I love my original protein bites, variety is the spice of life and I was looking for something a little more exciting. Enter the rolled oats and goldenberry bites.
Before we dig in, you're probably asking your, what on earth is a goldenberry?! Glad you asked. A superfruit used widely by the Incan Empire, goldenberries are tart berries loaded with beta-carotene, protein, bioflavonoids and vitamin A. They're a great snack or can be added to yogurts, oatmeal, smoothie bowls, healthy cookies and more. They add a nice little sour punch to these otherwise sweet bites and did I mention how great they are for your skin?

1/4 cup of goldenberries
1 cup of gluten free rolled oats
2 scoops of sunwarrior chocolate protein
1 tbs of chia seeds
2 tbs of pumpkin seeds
1/2 a cup of almond butter
2-4 tbs of almond milk
1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut shreds
Add all ingredients, except the coconut, to a bowl or blender and mix until all ingredients are well distributed. Roll into small balls, dunk in the coconut shreds and place in the fridge until you're ready to eat. They travel well, too, so don't be afraid to throw them in a container and take them to work or the gym.
