{Recipe} Sweet Potato Protein Bites

Ever try to start eating healthy, but find yourself wanting to snack, and when you go to do so, you realize you dont have any healthy snacks?

BIGGEST thing i run into with trying to eat clean!

So when i came across this recipe on pinterest, i HAD to try them!
I think it was the TWO INGREDIENTS thing that caught my eye!
They are also good to add to a fitness routine!
---------------------------------------------

Ingredients:
*1 cup mashed sweet potato
*8 egg whites
*1 teaspoon cinnamon (plus extra if desired)

Directions!:
  • Bake sweet potatoes in oven (or microwave) until fork tender. Let cool and scrape out flesh and mash gently with fork until smooth

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Combine all ingredients in a blender or large, immersion blender-friendly bowl. Blend together until very smooth - about 30 seconds (i used a beater. It just make the potato a little more chunky. I liked it that way)

  • Pour into lightly greased mini muffin tins (or you can line with liners), filling each tin about 2/3 of the way full

  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, let cool completely, then remove from tin and store in refrigerator.

 Each small bite contains 20 calories, 4g carbs, and 2g protein. A serving of 6 bites has 130 calories, 20g carbs, and 11g protein..
It was suggested tha adding almond butter on top is AMAZING! (and still healthy). :)
They taste just like sweet potato with cinnamon and don’t really have an “eggy” sort of taste of them.

ENJOY!
