Dark Chocolate Cranberry Protein Energy Bites

I had no idea how these babies would turn out. But boy am I glad I practiced a bit of faith and threw caution to the wind (or in this case chocolate to the mix!) and rolled em up anyways.

If you haven’t tried my 4 Ingredient Protein Bites already, uhm where have you been?! And secondly, those bites became a family favourite, but these Dark Chocolate Cranberry Protein Bites have taken the spotlight and are my dad’s favourite snack I have ever made.

Ever made! That’s HUGE!

I won’t make you wait a second longer, so here is the recipe you’ve been waiting for. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to be making batches of these sweet delights because they’ll be gone before you know it!
