Abstract Background



Brownie Bliss Bites

As someone who was recently diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, and has spent the last almost thirty years of my life without any dietary restrictions, you can imagine how hard it is now to suddenly become ill to foods I had been enjoying my whole life. My journey to wellness lead me to create each and every one of these recipes featured on damn good thyme.

For the first twenty years of my life, I followed a plant-based lifestyle filled with beautiful salads, homemade veggie burgers, and every type of smoothie bowl you could imagine.

While I no longer consume nuts/seeds/or legumes, due to the fact that I developed mast cell activation syndrome, I still enjoy making some of my favorite recipes for friends and family.

Today, I share with you a family favorite- these Brownie Bliss Bites! These bites give all the flavor of a chocolatey/nutty brownie without any baking required. You can even add a scoop of protein to them to make them extra nutrient rich! See below for a discounted link!

Storage Instructions

The proper storage for protein bites can help maintain their freshness and quality. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Refrigeration:

  • If your protein bites contain perishable ingredients like fresh fruits, dairy, or nut butters, it's advisable to store them in the refrigerator.

  • Refrigeration helps prevent the growth of bacteria and extends the shelf life of the ingredients.

  1. Airtight Container:

  • Store protein bites in an airtight container to protect them from moisture and air exposure. These are my favorite airtight containers for refrigeration storage.

  • This helps maintain their texture and prevents them from becoming too dry.

  1. Freezing:

  • Protein bites can often be frozen for longer-term storage. Place them in an airtight container or wrap them individually in plastic wrap before freezing.

  • Allow them to thaw at room temperature for a few minutes before consuming.

  1. Cool, Dark Place:

  • If your protein bites do not contain highly perishable ingredients, you can store them in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.

  • Exposure to heat and light can cause ingredients like chocolate or nut butters to soften or melt.

  1. Separation:

  • If you're storing different flavors of protein bites together, consider separating them with parchment paper to prevent any flavor transfer.

  1. Consume Within a Reasonable Timeframe:

  • While protein bites can have a decent shelf life, it's best to consume them within a reasonable timeframe to enjoy their optimal freshness and taste.

Always check any specific storage recommendations provided with the recipe or packaging of commercially bought protein bites, as ingredients can vary. Additionally, be mindful of the perishable nature of certain ingredients to ensure the safety and quality of your protein bites.
