•1 cup uncooked oats (gluten free)
•¾ cup unsweetened almond butter (can substitute peanut butter)
•¼ cup honey
•½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut plus more to roll balls in, if desired
•¼ cup flaxseeds
•¼ cup chia seeds
1/2 cup clean vanilla protein powder (see notes below for brands)
3-4 Tbsp unsweetened plant/nut based milk
•¼ cup cocoa nibs (can also use mini dark chocolate chips)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Scoop into balls and store in fridge. If dough is too sticky, put in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before forming into balls. Optional: roll balls into more shredded coconut. Should last 2 weeks in refrigerator.
•I use a cookie dough scoop to make the balls.
•Perfect mid-morning or afternoon pick-me up snack. Will also satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt!
I like using the following brands: Orgain Organic, Primal Kitchen Collagen Protein powder and Perfect Keto brands. If you're not sensitive to dairy, try Terra's Whey Organic.
