This no-bake chocolate coconut protein ball recipe packs a ton of healthy ingredients and delicious flavors into a tasty bite sized treat!
When I find myself struggling to get enough protein in my diet, I like to whip up a batch of homemade protein bars or energy bites for snack time. These chocolate coconut energy balls are sweet enough to pass as dessert, but they also make a great on-the-go breakfast option. Honestly, they’re perfect for ANY time of day!
EAS 100% Whey Protein Powder is a deliciously simple yet effective way for active individuals to add more protein to their diet, and it is available in a handy single-serving package so you don’t even need a measuring cup for this recipe (EAS is 10% off right now at Target + there’s a 5% Cartwheel discount as well!).
Pour the contents of one chocolate protein powder packet into a bowl along with almond butter, peanut butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, raw honey, unsweetened shredded coconut, salt and chocolate chips. Use a large spoon to mix everything together, and then roll the mixture into balls. Finish by rolling and coating each ball in the reserved coconut flakes.
What You'll Need:
- 1 Single-Serving Packet EAS 100% Whey Chocolate Protein Powder
- 3 tbsp Almond Butter
- 2 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 tbsp Raw Organic Honey
- 1 tbsp Unsweetened Shredded Coconut + 1 tsp reserved for coating balls
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips, coarsely chopped
- Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
- Roll into balls approximately 1.5" in size.
- Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
These energy bites can be eaten as soon as they have been shaped, and leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. They will be soft set immediately after mixing; however, they take on a brownie-like texture after they have been refrigerated, so I usually eat mine straight out of the fridge. YUM!
