1 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 tablespoons solid coconut oil
2 teaspoons raw honey
1 teaspoon peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut flakes
1/4 cup coconut milk
Melted bittersweet chocolate chips (just microwave in a bowl and add water to thin if needed)
Start out by mixing together all of your ingredients in a bowl until a sticky dough forms. Work the dough until it’s consistent enough to roll into small balls. Add more protein powder if the mix is too wet. Then, roll into small balls and place on parchment paper. Drizzle each ball with a little bit of melted chocolate. Then, refrigerator or freeze until firm. Serve and enjoy!
