Almond Butter Chocolate Protein Bites

These Almond Butter Chocolate Protein Bites were inspired by a vegan peanut butter chocolate protein bar from a juice bar in Houston, TX. I’m not a fan of vegan proteins, so I thought I’d figure out a way to make them myself. After a little tinkering in the kitchen, we found a winner. Jim approved!
