No Bake Protein Bites Recipe Ingredients
- 1 cup peanut butter (I used plain organic peanut butter with no salt added. Any nut butter will work though.)
- 3/4 cup oats
- 1 T hemp seeds
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1/2 dark chocolate bar (chopped into chocolate chip-sized pieces). I used Alter Eco Blackout Chocolate. In general, the higher the % of cacao is, the lower the sugar content will be.
- 4 scoops of Pure Food Raw Cacao Protein Powder
- 1 T honey (optional, depending on how sweet you like it)
- 1 cup water (or plant milk)
- 2 T shredded coconut (optional)
**Makes ~16 protein bites
How to Make the Protein Bites
- Put all ingredients in a food processor and turn it on for 30-60 seconds.
- Form the dough into balls (this recipe makes around 16 protein bites).
- Sprinkle with coconut, if desired.
- Refrigerate whatever protein bites you don’t eat right away. 😉
