Cacoa & Coconut Protein Bites

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!

2 – 3 TBS Chocolate Zico*

1/4 C Slivered Almonds 
1/4 C Organic Blue Agave

*Only add the third TBS of chocolate Zico as necessary!

METHOD:

1. Mix all the above ingredients together (you may have to use your hands as it gets rather difficult to stir)!

3. Hand-Roll into golf-sized balls and swirl/roll around dry coconut flakes to cover evenly!

Keep refrigerated & Enjoy!
