Coconut Cacao Tahini Bites
Health Highlights
Delicious, 9-ingredient snack bites with coconut, tahini, cacao, and plenty of satisfying add-ins. High in healthy fats and protein!

Ingredients


1 1/2 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened
1 1/2 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill (or use seed meal; such as sunflower; hemp)
2 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground)
3 tbsp hulled Hemp seeds, shelled
2 tbsp Pea Protein Powder (or vegan protein powder; plain, vanilla or chocolate)
1/3 cup Tahini
5 tbsp Coconut butter
1/4 cup Cacao nibs, raw
1 pinch Sea Salt
1 dash Cinnamon (ground)

Instructions


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend/ pulse on high until large ball forms. This takes about 5 minutes. Scrape down sides as needed.
     
  2. 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.
     
  3. Scoop out 2 tbsp amounts, form into a ball, and arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet. You should have about 20 bites.
     
  4. 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 for up to 1 month or refrigerator for up to 1 week. If storing in the freezer, let thaw 5-10 minutes for best texture.

Notes:

No Protein Powder

  • Leave out protein powder if you don't have any. 
  • Use whey (if not vegan), collagen, or other plant-based protein powder.
