Nutty Collagen Bites

 I have enjoyed making these for the last month or so with different variations. Sometimes chocolate flavored or unflavored Vital protein. Both have been great. I just store them in the freezer in a glass covered freezer container or ziplock bag. Then I grab one or two out when I want a protein snack between meals. Goes great with an apple. 

You could use this brand of collagen or a brand you like better. I have done it with both flavors and has worked well with both. This brand has a good source of protein too



1 cup of nut butter of your choosing 

2 Tbsp honey

8 Tablespoons of collagen powder or protein powder 

2 tablespoons chia *optional 


1. Put all ingredients in a small bowl. Stir until all mixed together. I sometimes knead together with my hands. (If needed add more collagen to get desired consistency.)

2. Roll into small balls. Place in freezer air tight container or ziplock. Place in freezer. 

3. Take out and eat when you need a nice protein snack.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bunt-let (Gluten free)

Happy Fall! It is a wonderful time of year to enjoy pumpkin. I called my daughter yesterday and she was making pumpkin bread. It was a rainy day. It was on my mind too. What can I make with pumpkin. I must admit. I enjoy pumpkin all year. It isn't just for Fall in my eyes. I was telling my daughter- in-law she should make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies today.  I have gotten smarter through the years to buy a supply of pumpkin when it goes on sale. :)  I learned from my experience of going to the store and having them out of pumpkin during the Fall season. That was sad. :(

My family our fans of these cute little bunt-lets. They are so fun to make. I found an awesome pan here . It is so easy to use and they come out so easily. I opted to make these today with just a light sprinkle of powdered sugar. They were so delicious. Full of flavor and they tasted so good warm.
