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!
