No Bake Dark Chocolate Protein Bites






Ingredients

¾ cup cashews
2 T dark cocoa powder
3 T unsweetened chocolate almond milk
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
2 T honey
2 T melted sugar-free chocolate

Method

1. Blend cashews in a food processor until you get a fine meal. *Note: make sure you avoid over mixing – if you blend the cashews too long, you will get cashew butter.

2. Pour cashew meal into a mixing bowl along with the protein powder and cocoa powder. Stir together.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, coconut oil, and honey. Pour this mixture into the other bowl of dry ingredients. Stir until you get a thick paste-like mixture.

4. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Using your hands, roll about 1.5-2 tablespoons of protein batter into balls. Place protein bite on parchment paper and repeat this until 24 bites are made.

5. Drizzle each protein bite with melted chocolate. Place protein bites in the fridge for 1 hour. Remove from fridge and let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before eating. Enjoy!

*Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days
