Healthy Dessert Cocoa Balls with Protein Powder
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds - where to get
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup chocolate protein powder - where to get
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup unsweetened, finely shredded coconut
  • Mini Food Processor - where to get
Instructions
  1. Add the almonds to a food processor and pulse into fine crumbles, about 30 seconds (I love my mini food processor for recipes like this).
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the coconut oil and shredded coconut. Pulse another 10 seconds until combined.
  3. Add half of the coconut oil and pulse 10 seconds. Continue to add in coconut oil until the consistency is wet but it’s still clumping together a bit.
  4. Sprinkle the shredded coconut onto a piece of parchment paper.
  5. Form little balls with the cocoa mixture and roll in shredded coconut.
  6. Put them in the fridge or freezer for 20 min to set. Store in a tupperware.
