Are you lookin’ for the perfect teatime treat that won't derail your healthy eating resolution? Then look no further! These little low-carb balls of bliss are absolutely delish and crazy simple to make. Better still, they contain no dairy, grains, or refined sugar, but are packed with healthy fats & protein.
Ingredients for 8 balls:
3/4 cup almond butter (I used crunchy)
1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
1 to 2 scoops collagen peptides (optional)
2 Tbsp shelled hemp seeds (gluten-free if needed)
1 to 2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 to 1/4 tsp sea salt
optional stevia or sweetener of choice to taste
optional add-ins: 2 Tbsp chia seeds, raw cacao nibs, dark chocolate chips or finely chopped nuts for extra crunch!
Put almond butter, coconut, collagen (if using), hemp seeds, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, vanilla, salt, and sweetener into blender container. Blend until well-mixed, adding second Tbsp of coconut oil if mixture seems dry.
Stir-in cacao nibs, chocolate chips, nuts or seeds as desired.
Scrape sticky mixture onto a plate or parchment paper. Roll into approximately 8 balls.
Enjoy as-is or store in an air-tight container in the fridge for a week, or the freezer for up to 2 months.
