Delicious, 9-ingredient snack bites with coconut, tahini, cacao, and plenty of satisfying add-ins! High in healthy fats and protein! The carb load is remarkably low with just 11.4g and 7.4g of fibre for a net carb of just 4g. This is a great snack for anyone watching their blood sugar levels or who are following a keto diet. Anytime a recipe is a low sugar or low carb, I’m all over it. If you have high triglycerides, low HDL, or high total cholesterol, getting off sugar and flour (which converts to sugar) becomes the best way to fix those problems. I’m not saying eat more Protein Bites, but everything in moderation 🙂 Enjoy these super clean and super charged bites!
Coconut Cacao Protein Bites
Total Protein per serving: 6.2g
Total Fat per serving: 28.6g
Total Carb per serving: 11.4 with 7.4g of fibre.
To a food processor, add all ingredients and blend until a thick paste/ball forms (see photo) ~5 minutes. Scrape down sides as needed.
If the mixture is too thick, add more coconut butter or tahini. If the mixture is too thin, add more almond flour or shredded coconut. It should be thick and scoopable.
Scoop out 2-Tbsp amounts (I like this cookie scoop) and arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet. You should have about 20 bites.
Set in freezer or refrigerator to firm up. Once firm to the touch, they're ready to enjoy. For best results, store in the freezer up to 1 month or refrigerator up to 1 week. If storing in the freezer, let thaw 5-10 minutes before enjoying for best texture.
