Coconut Protein Snacks

DSC_0007 I made these for a post workout option or even on those mornings when I need something really quick and easy. I’m not saying that you should eat these every morning, but they are a great option in those moments when you need something quick. They are also sweet enough that to me they taste like a treats, so I also like to eat them when I need something sweet.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup  protein powder – I used chocolate
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut shreds – plus 1/4 cup of shreds to cover the balls.
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 coconut oil
  • 1/3 almond butter
  • 1/4 cup pure cocoa powder
  • 2-3 Tbsp milk – almond, coconut, dairy or water
  • liquid stevia – to taste

Instructions

  1. Add all of these ingredients together in a big bowl and mix until well blended.
  2. Roll small amounts into a ball.
  3. Roll balls in coconut shreds until covered.
  4. Refrigerate or freeze until hard.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
  6. Enjoy!!!
