Notes

  • These can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, however you can store them in the freezer for up to 3 months!
  • Experiment using different nut butters such as sunflower or soy butter.  
  • You can also switch up the add-ins by trying chopped dates  or dried cherries in place of raisins or mini chocolate chips or mini M&M's.
  • If you don't have whey protein, you can try other protein powders as well such as pea protein, hemp protein or soy protein.   
  • Sweetening agents may also be switched up- try agave nectar, barley malt syrup or brown rice syrup instead of honey or maple syrup.
