PLANT-PURE PROTEIN BITES
1 packet Aloha Organic Protein (Vanilla)
1 cup Trader Joe's Almond Flour
1/2 cup Trader Joe's Almond Butter (I used crunchy.)
1/4 cup local, raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Lily's stevia-sweetened dark chocolate chips
Pinch of Maldon Salt
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix with wooden spoon or spatula, slowly incorporating the ingredients. If the batter is too dry, add a drop more honey or nut butter. If batter is too wet, add more protein powder. Today, I used these exact measures and they came out perfect.
Once all of the ingredients are incorporated (don't over-mix batter!), and batter is just moist enough to form a ball, roll out balls of batter onto a plate using up the whole mixture.
I freeze mine, and take them out as needed, rather than keep them in fridge where they might dry out. It depends how fast you eat them and how many others will be grabbing up these plant-powered treats!
Bet they would be good half-dipped in melted chocolate chips and rolled in toasted pecans. I loved them just as is today.
These are the perfect pick-me-up at the office, before or after the gym and for a fast breakfast get-away in the morning.
