Vanilla Cran-Coco Bites
We may be challenging you guys to run outside in freezing cold temps [who’s participating in #runCHAARG?], but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a lil’ taste of summer in our lives. I love coconut because it reminds me so much of summer. These vanilla cran-coco bites get a hearty kick from the oatmeal + protein making them a super filling snack that’s also just a little bit sweet. The best part about these little bites? They are super quick to make + really easy to take on-the-go! Perfect to pop in your mouth after a run : )
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Rolled Oats
¼ cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
2 tbsp Flax Meal
¼ cup Vanilla Protein Powder
6 tbsp Almond Butter
¼ cup Dried Cranberries
3 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
#1] In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients until well mixed. Add in the the almond butter + honey + vanilla ++ stir until a dough forms.
#2] Form the dough into balls, packing each tightly.
#3] Store the protein bites in the fridge. ++ ENJOY : )
