 These no-bake treats are so delicious & loaded with healthy chocolate protein goodness. 

  I can say that chocolate and peanut butter are some of my top flavor combos. There is just something about peanut butter dipped in chocolate that is a taste that I can't get enough of. The strange thing is I do not like the taste of peanut butter by itself. I also can't stand the smell of peanut butter straight from the jar. When my kids eat a peanut butter sandwich, they know to stay away from me as their peanut butter breath annoys me.

 Combine the gooey peanut butter and sweet chocolate taste together and I am licking the spoon. I just love chocolate peanut butter ice cream, vegan for me and peanut butter cookies dipped in chocolate. I also love chocolate peanut butter protein smoothies. I make my peanut butter chocolate smoothies with an amazingly rich chocolate protein powder that is so delicious. 

The Best Allergy-Friendly Protein powder

 Nuzest makes a vegan protein powder that I can enjoy on my dairy-free diet. It was about three years ago when I decided to use a whey-based protein powder that led to my discovery of my dairy allergy. I did not know at the time that I was allergic to milk but after 6 months of severe asthma attacks, I realized that dairy was the cause. It was a blood food allergy test that confirmed my dairy allergy.

 I love that Nuzest is an allergy-friendly plant-based protein powder. Nuzest is made from simple clean ingredients like the best pea protein. Nuzest also has no added sugar which makes it a low-carb food item that is perfect for the Keto diet. This delicious creamy protein is gluten-free and soy-free. Each of Nuzest's dairy-free protein powders has 20 grams of vegan protein. You will love all their yummy flavors like creamy vanilla, strawberry, and rich chocolate.

 One scoop of Nuzest protein powder and a scoop of peanut butter powder is all I need to make a delicious chocolate peanut butter smoothie.  To add additional nutrition like fiber and antioxidants to my protein smoothie, I like to add a cup of frozen blueberries. Blueberries blend nicely in a chocolate smoothie and don't leave a fruity taste. So I end up with a creamy peanut butter smoothie.

Protein Powder Adds Protein To Sweet Treats

 I like adding protein powder to recipes like vegan chocolate pancakes, gluten-free brownies, and this NO BAKE CHOCOLATE DIPPED PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN CANDY recipe. Protein powder adds protein and fiber to make my recipes healthy. The best part is my kids still enjoy their favorite treats and this mom snuck some extra nutrition into their bodies.

Sprinkles are optional

 Sprinkles are optional on these no-bake chocolate-dipped peanut butter protein treats. I think that the sprinkles add a nice look to the candy. You can shape these treats into many different shapes. I like making mine in a patty shape but you can roll the chocolate dough into balls or logs. No matter what shape you mold these treats into they will be super delicious and loaded with the power of protein.
