Banana Bread Protein Bites

When I make treats, I always have my husband in mind.  He likes anything sweet and if I can make it healthy, even better!  Since he’s so active, it’s always ideal if it’s something quick and that he can easily snack on.  That’s why these Banana Bread Protein Bites are perfect.

I wasn’t sure what to call these exactly. These have bananas in them. But, they also have peanut butter (you can also sub another nut or seed butter).

I guess I am on a peanut butter kick lately.  I posted these Chocolate Banana Nut Butter Cups and I keep them consistently stashed in my freezer. Soooo, I blame my husband since he LOVES his peanut butter.
