HWCF members and Paleo Challengers Katy and Sarah sent over this yummy looking snack recipe today which they modified from myvega.
Since the word protein is in the title, I ran it through the recipe calculator over at myfitnesspal and, just fyi, one bite contains 4g protein, 6g carbs, and 8g fat – without any of the optional ingredients. One thing I’d add is if you need the sweet, raw honey is another option.
When I try it I’m going to see how it works to roll them in shredded coconut.
Ingredients (Makes 12 Bites)
½ cup almond butter
½ cup ground chia seeds (or flax seeds)
½ tsp vanilla
Optional: agave nectar to taste; unsweetened cocoa powder to taste
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and roll into balls. If the mixture feels too dry, add a teaspoon of water and adjust until you reach a rollable dough-like consistency. Store balls in an air tight container in the refrigerator or freezer for up to two weeks
