Protein Bites

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
