If you want an easy on the go snack for the busy parent, well banana bread protein bites are your go-to. They’re the go-to due to the sheer fact that they are packed full of vitamins and minerals that are good for you and your baby. Adding nuts like walnuts, almonds, cashews, and pistachios are all a great choice when it comes to this recipe they are packed with healthy fats and antioxidants. If you are breastfeeding, nuts can give your milk a boost for you and your baby (it can even decrease the likelihood of your baby from developing an allergy from nuts).
