Chocolate Coconut Banana Energy Bites

IMG_1122

I’m going to be honest with you: I haven’t cooked or baked anything in the last seven weeks or so. This first-trimester-of-pregnancy thing is really hitting me hard in the food department. AKA: essentially every food I’ve ever loved before makes me want to vomit. Luckily my wonderful husband has been picking up the slack and doing some cooking around here (otherwise he would starve LOL).

So needless to say, this energy bite recipe has actually been sitting in limbo for quite a while, just waiting to be shared. I made a batch a few months ago and they were delicious, so the time has come to impart my knowledge on you. Maybe someone else will get pleasure out of making them, since I’m definitely not right now. 😛

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups oats
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp chocolate protein powder (or cocoa powder if you don’t have protein powder)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 banana
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp flour
2 to 3 tbsp water (if necessary)

METHOD:

1. In a large bowl, mix together oats, salt, protein powder, coconut, and flour. Set aside.

2. In a food processor, add banana, honey, and coconut oil (melted, if necessary). Process until smooth.

3. Pour the liquid mixture into the oat mixture and stir until all oats are incorporated. If the mixture is too dry, add water one tablespoon at a time.

4. Once fully mixed, roll mixture into balls, using about a tablespoon of your dough per ball. These will last up to two weeks in the fridge. Enjoy!
