These things make me happy: chocolate, almond butter, and chia seeds.
All three of them are magical foods that should be a regular staple of everyone’s diet. Especially chocolate.
Better yet, all three are included in these super easy chocolate coconut energy balls. They’re amazing and I’d highly recommend you make them! And check out those macros, they’re pretty awesome too 🙂
Here’s your Chocolate Coconut Chia Energy Ball recipe:
2/3 cup oat flour (just blend some oats to make your own)
1/2 cup chocolate whey protein powder
3-4 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
3 Tbsp almond butter
2 tsp chia seeds
2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted
Mix together the oat flour, protein powder, and cocoa powder in a medium sized bowl. Add in the honey, almond butter, and vanilla extract, then slowly stir in the almond butter one tablespoon at a time until you get a thick dough. Place in the fridge to chill.
Once chilled, remove from the fridge and form into 8 balls and place on wax paper. Pour the chia seeds onto a plate, then lightly toast the coconut in nonstick pan and stir into the chia seeds. Roll each ball in the coconut chia seed mixture until completely covered, then place in the fridge to chill for at least 30-60 minutes. Eat up!
