No Bake Cookie Dough Energy bites
Healthy energy bites that taste like chocolate chip cookie dough! Perfect for breakfast, snacking, and even dessert.
YIELD: 12 balls | TOTAL TIME: 10 minutes
1/2 cup natural almond butter
1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder (about 2 scoops—use plant-based protein powder to make this dairy free)
1/3 cup coconut flour,* plus 1-2 tablespoons additional as needed
1 1/2 Tbsp honey (or pure maple syrup)
1 Tea pure vanilla extract
1/4 Tea cinnamon
2-4 Tbsp Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 Tbsp dark chocolate chips (dairy free if desired)
In a large bowl, mix the almond butter, protein powder, 1/3 cup coconut flour, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons almond milk. Stir until the mixture forms a dough that is soft enough to roll into balls, but not overly sticky. Add additional coconut flour or almond milk as needed to make the mixture more or less dry. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Roll mixture into 12 balls. Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator for later.
Bites can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or frozen for up to 3 months.
*Since this recipe isn’t baked, I recommend using pasteurized coconut flour to eliminate possible food safety risks.
