‘No Bake’ German Chocolate PROTEIN Bites – Quick & Simple!

I whipped these up today in honor of #FingerFoodFriday’s COCONUT theme!

6 pitted medjool dates (soaked in water for an hour)
1 scoop(30grams) Plant Fusion chocolate protein powder
1/4cup + (1tbsp for topping) of reduced fat unsweetened coconut – divided
1/4cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2tbsp Better Body Foods coconut oil
Amber Lyn Chocolates SUGAR FREE dark chocolate bite

Place all ingredients into a food processor and mix until well combined. A spatula will be your best friend with this recipe! Keep scraping down the sides until the dates are all chopped up. Roll into balls and then lightly flatten into squares. Place the tablespoon of shredded coconut in a small bowl and dip the tops of the squares into it. Place the chocolate square in a zip lock bag and microwave for about 30-45 seconds until melted. Snip off the corner of the bag & squeeze onto bites! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chia PROTEIN Bites – Quick & Easy!

Ingredients:

2 scoops (60grams) of Plant Fusion chocolate protein powder
1tbsp TruVibe Organics chia seeds
2tbsp Better Body Foods agave nectar
2tbsp of Better Body Foods coconut oil
1tbsp of TruVibe Organics cacao powder
2tbsp of nut butter of choice
4-5tbsp of milk of choice
1/4 reduced fat unsweetened finely shredded coconut

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl EXCEPT the coconut. I find it best to knead it like a dough with my hands as it will start out pretty crumbly. Slowly add the milk in as the amount needed will probably differ with different protein powders. Once you have formed one large dough ball, break off pieces and roll into desired size balls and place on a piece of wax/parchment paper. After you have all of your balls formed, place the coconut on a plate and roll each ball. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
