Protein Bites Recipe
½ cup Agave Nectar
1/3 cup unsweetened cacao powder
¼ cup unsweetened Almond Milk
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup Almond Butter
2 cups Gluten-Free Oats
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (dry)
½ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/8 tsp sea salt
1-2 scoops Protein Powder (vanilla, chocolate, or no flavor)
- In a medium saucepan, mix together agave and cacao powder. Heat over medium heat until mixed really well. Stir in Almond Milk and Coconut Oil and bring to a boil. Continue stirring and boil for one minute.
- Remove pan from heat and stir in Almond Butter, Oats, Coconut, Vanilla, Protein Powder, and Salt.
- Use a spoon or cookie scoop, drop bites onto wax paper, Let them set up for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator before serving. Store protein bites in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to one week.
Note: You can use raw honey instead of the agave if you don’t need to make vegan cookies. You can also use regular rolled oats if you don’t need the cookies to be gluten free. You can replace the almond milk with your favorite milk as well. And if you want to swap peanut butter for almond butter you have that option too. These protein bites are very adaptable and taste delicious! One batch makes about 11-13 bites. ENJOY!!!
