Coconut 🥥 Vanilla Protein Balls
Coconut is such an awesome flavor and there is so much you can do with it! These are a great snack if you have a midday or nighttime sweet tooth. These were easy to make and last one week in the refrigerator. Depending on serving size, they are 100-200 calories per ball! I chose to go with 10 balls for my servings. Tag us if you try it and enjoy!
- 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter (I chose a peanut butter that had only dry roasted peanuts as the ingredients).
-2 scoops Vanilla Protein (I used @vega)
-1 tbsp coconut oil
-½ cup coconut flakes
-1 tsp honey
-1 scoop collagen (optional)
-Blend your nut butter, protein powder, coconut oil, honey, and optional collagen in a blender.
-Transfer your mixture to a bowl and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
-Place your coconut flakes on a plate. Roll your mixture into balls and roll them through the flakes!
-Keep refrigerated for one week.
