Many of us crave a little sweet treat to help bridge the gap between lunch and dinner. These protein bites hit the mark every time. You can sub in almonds and almond butter if cashews aren’t your thing. We use raw nuts for the best consistency—the higher moisture content in the nuts creates a smoother texture that’s easier to process.
1. Place everything in a food processor and mix until you have a crumbly mixture that will stick together if pressed.
2. Remove the mixture from the food processor, rolling it between your hands into 6 evenly sized balls. If you have any extra coconut, roll the power bites in the coconut to prevent them from sticking together.
3. Transfer the protein bites to an airtight container and store them in the fridge for a firmer texture or at room temperature if you like them super soft. These will keep for up to 5 days.
