Stay on Track and Munch Away on These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bites
Do you have any trips or adventures planned for this summer? We have a few, which is so exciting for me and my family. It’s been far too long since we’ve had any real fun and we are all ready to just let go and ENJOY!
Unless things change (and I am totally open to change, i.e. if someone wants to fly me somewhere…I’m up for it!), our adventures this year will be car trips which mean LOTS of time in the car and lots of hunger pangs from the crew.
Right now, my two older sons and I have been eating healthier and making smarter choices with our eating habits and one of the little treats that help us all are these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bites.
These are so easy to make and the taste is amazing.
I picked up the ingredients this past Sunday at my local Giant Eagle and as an added bonus, I got fuelperks+ that I’ll be using to help with the sting of high gasoline costs. I’ll be saving up those perks for pre-trip fill-ups. Perks are easy to earn. You earn them for every single thing Giant Eagle sells and you can use those perks for up to 20% off ANY grocery order or 30 gallons of FREE gas!
You can find out more here. I use the Giant Eagle app to track how many perks I have and how much I can save on fuel. It’s a great way to maximize savings so I have more money for summer adventures with my family.
And here is another tip and it’s something I do all the time.
When I know we’ll be traveling I pick up some restaurant gift cards for eating while we’re on the road. I learned long ago to be prepared when it comes time to feeding my guys and buying the gift cards at Giant Eagle isn’t only convenient but, ka-ching, perks! They carry so many gift cards that anytime I have some gift giving to do or I know we’ll be eating out or doing some shopping, I pick up gift cards at Giant Eagle so I earn perks….it’s all about the perks, baby! 😉
Now, for the recipe!
