Gluten Free Chocolate Chia PROTEIN Bites – Quick & Easy!
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.

*NEW PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT – Sweet Spreads*
I am the queen of online shopping! Allow me to introduce you to my most recent find – Sweet Spreads Coconutter which is an all natural flavored coconut butter.
I had seen many different people posting about these all over Instagram. So of course, I had to try it! OH MY GOODNESS, I had no idea what my taste buds were in for – WOW! I picked up the sampler pack which came with 6 smaller jars of their White Chocolate, Cinnamon Roll, Maple Pancake, Chocolate Brownie, Dark Chocolate Mint & Vanilla Cupcake (which is what you see on top of my blondie in this picture!). It was seriously hard for me to pick a favorite but I think I’m leaning towards the Dark Chocolate Mint! It reminded me of either a thin mint cookie or Andes mint.
If you’ve never heard of this company than I highly encourage you to check them out! From what I could tell they are based out of Miami, FL and their products can be purchased online here: http://www.sweetspreads.com/
