I was recently experimenting with my favorite chocolate protein powder and came up with a super yummy recipe I think (hope) you’re going to love! These Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls are protein-rich, healthful and keto-friendly. They are excellent for a grab-and-go snack on the run. I made a batch this weekend and took them to Emma’s all-day volleyball tournament. She loved the chocolatey taste and David and I enjoyed them too!

They are quick and easy to make and keep well in the fridge. Feel free to add other ingredients to suit your health goals and taste buds. Here are some ideas for add-ins:

  • dark chocolate chips
  • old-fashioned oats
  • hemp seeds
  • chopped nuts
  • pumpkin seeds
  • dried cranberries

The possibilities are endless!

Ingredients

Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls

1 cup natural nut butter, smooth or creamy (I used peanut butter)
2-3 T. honey
2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1 ½ cups MorelliFit Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate
2 T. chia seeds
3-6 T. water

Heat nut butter and honey for 30 seconds in the microwave and stir. Add all other ingredients and mix everything together. You want them to stick together so you can roll them into balls. You can add more water to adjust the texture.

Roll them into balls. Place them on a parchment paper-covered cookie sheet or platter. Then put them in the fridge for at least an hour to set.

These are great on the go, muscle-building post-workout or delicious for those times when you’re craving chocolate!
