Ingredients


1 1/2 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened ((120 g) shredded unsweetened)
1 1/2 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill ((168 g); meal (or sub seed meal; such as sunflower; hemp))
2 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground) (Ground Fresh)
3 tbsp hulled Hemp seeds, shelled ((24 g))
2 tbsp Whey protein powder, unflavoured (~10 g) vegan (plain; vanilla; or chocolate) protein powder*)
1/3 cup Tahini ((1/3 to 1/2); (80-120 g) tahini)
2/3 kg Coconut butter (4-5 Tbsp (60-75 g))
1/4 cup Cacao nibs, raw, Sunfoods ((20 g) cacao nibs)
1 pinch Sea salt
1/4 tsp Cinnamon (ground)

Instructions


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend/ pulse on high until a 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 mixture is too thin, add more almond flour or shredded coconut. It should be thick and scoopable.
     
  3. Scoop out 2-Tbsp amounts (I like this cookie scoop) 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 up to 1 month or refrigerator up to 1 week. If storing in the freezer, let thaw 5-10 minutes before enjoying for best texture.
