Hey there chocolate lover. I’ve got a tasty treat just for you.
Even better news?
It’s GOOD FOR YOU.
Seriously, these dark chocolate coconut protein bites are packed with protein, are naturally sweetened, and taste like a Mound candy bar.
Yep, I know It’s exciting.
Now you might be thinking, “Big deal, Amy. There is literally a thousand protein bite recipes out there. Why is yours special?”
Great question, let’s answer that!
These protein bites are made with organic vegan all natural protein. This special plant-based protein is laced with superfoods and it tastes amazing (unlike most plant-based powders out there.)
Second, these bites are sweetened naturally with raw honey. If you didn’t know already raw honey is literally liquid gold nutritionally.
Honey has antioxidants, can provide natural allergy relief, and promotes healthy sleep! DOPE!
Third, I used coconut flour and natural shredded coconut in these bites. Coconut is an excellent source of healthy fats as well as potassium, magnesium, and electrolytes. WIN!
Lastly, I threw in a bit of cocoa powder. Cocoa not only is the best thing on the planet (#longlivechocolate) it’s full of rich antioxidants and flavonoids which can lower bad LDL cholesterol, boost mood, and improve cognitive performance.
Are you convinced these bites are special yet?
Yes? Good. Now you can have the recipe 😉
