These baby ruth protein bites have quickly become my newest obsession, I literally couldn’t wait to get them up! They are so simple to make – you just mix everything together, chuck it in the freezer, and you’re good to go! They are vegan, gluten-free, high protein, and made with whole food ingredients!

A bite out of a baby ruth protein bites.

They taste so similar to a baby ruth, with the maple syrup giving them a caramely flavor, but are packed with a little extra protein oomf – which I love adding to my no bake recipes because it keeps me satiated, aids in muscle recovery, and if you use a great tasting powder, can even add to the flavor of the recipe!

what’s in the baby ruth protein bites:

Protein Powder: If you’re not a protein fan, you can sub in coconut flour! Start with 2 tbsp. The mixture should be moldable! But I highly recommend adding a little dose of protein to help balance blood sugar and keep you fuller for longer! You can use code “amb-dani” for a discount on my fave!

Maple Syrup: You can sub any sticky sweetener for the maple syrup, but I love the caramel flavor it gives to the bites!

Peanut Butter: If you aren’t a fan or can’t consume peanuts, feel free to sub in any nut/seed butters! It’ll alter the taste a bit, but will still be amazing! Same goes for the peanuts – sub any nut.

Chocolate: As always, I used Hu Kitchen. It’s refined sugar-free and tastes absolutely amazing. You can use code danishealthyeats for a discount at checkout!

How to make the bites:

  1. Mix everything together.
  2. Stir in the nuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.
  3. Freeze for a bit to firm up.
  4. Melt the chocolate and dip each bite, returning to the freezer to set up.
  5. ENJOY!

How to store the bites:

Store the bites in an air-tight container in the freezer. Let them thaw a few minutes before enjoying for a softer texture!
