Bone broth might be the ultimate superfood. Its been said to help treat leaky gut, improve joint health, boost your immune system, reduce wrinkles, support in detoxification… the list goes on and on!
You know you should be consuming bone broth every day, but let’s face it, when you’re always on the go, you just don’t have time to make a batch of bone broth, let alone spend 10 minutes patiently sipping a mug full.
Enter organic bone broth protein powder. It’s literally dehydrated bone broth, making it a super convenient way to reap the benefits of bone broth.
That’s why I’ve created these protein bites! They’re an easy, delicious way to get a dose of bone broth on the go while simultaneously protecting your body against the harmful, inflammatory effects of stress. And they only take 15 minutes of active work to make!
WHY THESE GINGER TURMERIC BONE BROTH PROTEIN BITES ARE PERFECT ON THE GO
CONVENIENT WAY TO GET YOUR BONE BROTH. See above!
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY SUPPORT. Stress is a recipe for inflammation in the body. When your life is a to-do list that never ends that stress can cause chronic inflammation, which overtime, can lead to lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. This recipe is loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric, ginger, and bone broth to help support you and your body in operating at your best in spite of a busy schedule.
NUTRIENT DENSE. These bites pack a lot of nutrients in a small package. Check it out:
- Cashews are loaded with vitamins and minerals like magnesium and B6.
- Sunflower butter is high in protein as well as magnesium.
- Even maple syrup, when used in moderation, has impressive beneficial antioxidants and minerals.
- And, of course, see the anti-inflammatory benefits above!
BITE-SIZED. No utensils required. When a hunger pang strikes, simply pop one in your mouth and enjoy.
TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST GINGER TURMERIC BONE BROTH PROTEIN BITES
DON’T OVER MIX. When combining the ingredients in the food processor, less is more! The goal is a coarse mixture, not a fine mixture, because that gives these bites their texture! So instead of using the “on” button, opt for the pulse button in 1-2 second bursts so you don’t over mix.
BITES OR BALLS. I had originally planned to make this recipe protein balls, but then I realized I could shave 15 minutes off the total recipe time by turning these into bites. Because when you’re busy, every minute counts! The bites have the potential to be more crumbly than balls, but they’re faster to make. It’s up to you though – if you have time to make the balls, go for it!
USE FORCE. Whether making bites or balls, put some muscle to into shaping the mixture because that will give these bites their structural integrity. Either push the mixture firmly into the pan or using your hand, squeeze the mixture into a rough ball shape and then gently form it into a sphere with your fingers.
TRANSPORT IN A SOLID CONTAINER. When taking these bites or balls on the go, pack them in a Tupperware container to ensure they maintain their shape. Avoid ziplock bags because the bites will likely get crushed.
Gather your ingredients.
Add cashews and shredded coconut to food processor and pulse until a coarse, even mixture forms (see photo above for ideal texture).
Add sunflower butter, maple syrup, turmeric bone broth protein, and ground ginger to food processor.
Pulse food processor until a coarse, even mixture forms (the mixture should be slightly sticking together – see photo above).
Transfer mixture to an 8×8″ baking pan (or similar) and using your hands, push down on the mixture to create a firm, even layer in the pan.
Let set in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. Then remove tray and using a sharp knife, cut the mixture into squares and serve or store in a container in the fridge for later!
