A nutrient-dense snack that tastes just like brownie batter. Go for it.
2 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tablespoons chocolate protein powder
2 tablespoons oats (for gluten-free, be sure to use certified gf oats. For grain-free, use almond meal)
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (plus more as needed to texture)
Pinch of sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a small food processor.
Pulse to until all ingredients are mixed and you have a dough-like texture. Grab a little with your hand and pinch to see if it will hold together. If not, add a little more maple syrup and pulse until it reaches the right texture. (Depending on how drippy your nut butter is, you may need an extra tablespoon or so.)
Separate into 5 servings, roll into balls and store covered in the fridge for up to one week.
