I created these chocolate protein bites after a workout when I needed something with protein in but also something to satisfy my chocolate cravings. These taste like dark chocolate fudge it’s hard to believe that there is nothing bad in them! They have been described as being like those rich chocolate truffles you get in boxes at Christmas!
