You know you shouldn’t take the path of least resistance, but it’s just so…much…easier. Besides, when it comes to food, it should be simple – simple to make, simple to eat and made with simple ingredients. That’s why all signs are pointing to pistachio protein bites. Most of the ingredients you could actually find on a nature path, including honey, nuts and oats. Even assembling the one-bowl recipe is a total walk in the park – and you won’t regret a single step.
