Low Carb Chocolate Chip Coconut Bites

I love it when I find a recipe that proves that snacking really can be healthy AND delicious?like these crazy-good Chocolate Chip Almond Coconut Bites! Ruby can?t seem to get enough of these bad boys, and she?s not the only member of the Powell Pack who approves either. We?re all obsessed with these, and I extra love that they pack a hidden punch of protein and fuel.

Satisfying my sweet tooth is basically a full-time job, so when I find a recipe that does just that and is pretty dang healthy, I basically have to scream it from the mountain tops. These bites are loaded with almond butter and Greek yogurt for protein, plus the flax seeds and coconut oil are nutrient-rich, delivering a nice hit of Omega 3s, fiber, and MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides). I?ve included oats for energy and chocolate chips and sweetened coconut for?you guessed it? to satisfy that sweet side!

Did I mention that they?re easy to make too? I’m sure you assumed as much, because let’s be honest, if it’s too complicated, I’m not making it! So, let?s dig in!

  2. Hi, it still doesn’t show the almond milk and protein powder in the recipe…? Or am I doing something wrong… ?

    1. Hi Zantelle: This is one of the new recipes that will be in our app soon, and in the app, we add a protein shake on the side to make it a complete meal. We’ve fixed the recipe in this blog post to show only the ingredients needed for the coconut bites. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚
