Tried a little something different and was pleasantly surprised with how these turned out! I basically doubled the amount of protein I typically use, but by the time I had finished adding most of my ingredients the consistency was a whole lot stickier than other batches of energy bites I’ve made.
Not a problem, rolled ’em in unsweetened coconut flakes, and Jack-Pot! They look so decadent and fancy no one will ever know they are jam-packed with protein! Ultimate PRE- or POST-workout snack!
4 -1/2 scoops vanilla protein
1/2 C Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
3 TBS Chocolate PB2
2 – 3 TBS Chocolate Zico*
1 TBS Ground Flax
1 TBS Chia Seeds
1/4 C Craisans
1/4 C Raisins
1 TBS Organic Cacoa Nibs
1/4 C Slivered Almonds
1/4 C Organic Blue Agave
*Only add the third TBS of chocolate Zico as necessary!
1. Mix all the above ingredients together (you may have to use your hands as it gets rather difficult to stir)!
2. Add unsweetened coconut flakes into a bowl (enough to cover the base of the bowl)
3. Hand-Roll into golf-sized balls and swirl/roll around dry coconut flakes to cover evenly!
Keep refrigerated & Enjoy!
