Delicious and easy protein bites with all the flavor of pecan pie! I made these Pecan Pie Protein Bites last Thanksgiving, and they were a definite crowd-pleaser! I used coconut sugar to sweeten them, but you can substitute a no-calorie sweetener if you’d like to lower the carbs a bit.

I used Jamie Eason’s vanilla whey isolate, but it has since been discontinued. Other vanilla whey protein powders would work, like this one. And I’ve used Food Fitness By Paige‘s delicious vanilla extract. The flavor combination here is incredible!
