Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa nibs
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

Blend the ingredients in a bowl until the protein powder is combined. It will go quite "wet" because of coconut oil. (If the mixture is too dry, add a few drops of wate.)

Using a tablespoon, scoop and form into "balls" and place on waxed paper on a tray. Stick in the fridge for an hour and half, or in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Feel free to change up the nut butter, change the chia for flax, or add some of your favorite-boosters like maca.

Sugar Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Sugar Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
