Laura’s Cocoa Bites

 

 

My friend Laura brought these bites to our play time yesterday and they have been on my mind ever since. She sent me the recipe, so it’s a must have on this site. Great gluten free, protein packed snack. When I make them for myself, I will see what they taste like with less sweetener … will update!

Laura’s Cocoa Bites:

equal parts of the following- i.e. 1 cup each, 1/2 cup each depending on the size batch you desire

peanut butter: (almond butter, or whatever you prefer),
honey: (agave nectar, your preference, a combo of the two is nice too),
Cocoa powder
protein powder (vanilla or chocolate, whatever you have on hand or prefer).

Mix until it makes a play dough like consistency. Add cranberries, raisins, chocolate chips, whatever. Roll into small balls. Roll ball in flax meal, coconut flakes, cocoa powder, whatever to coat and keep from sticking to other balls. Refrigerate and enjoy!

Its a weird and fun recipe because you can basically doctor it and adjust to meet whatever taste you like, more or less of any ingredient as you wish!
