Buckeye Protein Bites

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to share a better-for-you treat that has been taking care of my sweet tooth lately.  These protein-packed goodies have much less fat, sugar and calories than the originals but taste delicious!  As always, they contain AboutTime all-natural protein powder, which is by far my favorite on the market!  You can use my promo code HAPPILYHUGHES for 25% off your order!  Here are my Buckeye Protein Bites:

    These look great! Chelsea had never heard of a buckeye so now I need to make these for her. Have you calculated the macros? I’d be interested to see the protein to calorie ratio.
