Coconut PB No-Bake Energy Bites

I was going to make the exact same Protein ball recipe (No-Bake PB Protein Balls) as I made last week but halfway through, I decided I wanted to make up another random recipe.  There are slight changes, not too major. I just love coconut so I rolled them in coconut flakes after! 🙂

This happens ALL the time! I mean, might as well right?! I get to try new combinations and see which one I like better. These are also no bake as well. So convenient!

I recently got this Natural Citizen Organic Plant Protein and I love it! It’s great in baking! It’s organic, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, allergen free and no added flavors! It’s suitable for everyone 🙂

Using this protein powder gives me complete control on the flavor of my baked good, smoothies or oatmeal. It’s unflavored and unsweetened so I can use it without it affecting my food while adding in more protein! I bake with it and add it into my smoothies/oatmeal.

I got this cute attached-lid mason jar from Ikea! I usually store my dried seeds, nuts or small batches of protein powder in it 🙂 It’s a cute storage item! IMG_5618

Directions: 

  1. Line a tray with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare a medium sized bowl filled halfway with coconut flakes.
  3. In another bowl, throw all ingredients in & mix well.
  4. When it becomes a thick sticky mixture, use your hands to roll into balls.
  5. Roll ball around in coconut flakes until coated.
  6. Place them on your baking tray about 1/2 inch apart.
  7. Leave it in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes before eating.

Rolling it in coconut makes it SO much better!
