Chocolate Almond Butter Protein Bites

I’ve been craving chocolate and peanut butter all day, and there’s not a peanut butter cup to be found in our house right now. My husband has been asking me to make some protein bites to have for snacks, so I decided to combine his request with my craving! Certainly a healthier choice than Reese’s.

After spending 20 minutes searching for a recipe, I couldn’t find anything that sounded good. So, time to make my own! The results? Pretty darn tasty! (if I do say so myself)

What you need:

  • 1 and 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 4 tablespoons chocolate protein powder
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until well blended. Roll into balls (I got 15) and store them in the fridge. Enjoy! Yum!
