These no bake protein bites are great for pre/post workout snacks or anytime you need an easy to grab snack.

The ingredients are paleo friendly but if you are looking for a non paleo option,  just substitute ingredients such as cacao nibs   (use chocolate chips), almond butter ( use any nut butter)  or other ingredients desired.

Makes 12-15 bites

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup nuts ( walnuts, cashews, almonds, etc)
  • 1 cup dates (or any other dried fruit) 
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs (optional)
  • coconut flakes or cacao powder (optional)

Directions 

Pulse coconut flakes and nuts together in a food processor  Add dates and process until it sticks together. (If your dates are dry, soak in warm water for 10 minutes then drain before using)

Transfer to a large bowl.  Add in almond butter, cacao nibs and mix well.

Shape mixture into bite size balls. Roll in coconut flakes or cacao powder.

Store in a covered container in the refrigerator. They keep for a week in the fridge or may be frozen.
