HIGH PROTEIN! Quinoa Energy Bites -- high protein in a delicious coconut-chai flavor. Great snack or post-workout! (naturally gluten-free + vegan)

Coconut Chai Protein Quinoa Energy Bites

I'm calling these ones "protein quinoa energy bites" because instead of loading them up with nuts like I normally do, I actually used some plant-based protein powder. The protein powder gives them a touch more sweetness and also helps keep them a little lower in fat, while still making them filling and satisfying.

  • To the food processor, add the dates. Process until broken apart and sticky, about 30 seconds. Add coconut and process until evenly distributed in the dates.
  • With the food processor running, add the remaining ingredients (minus the crispies and water) and process until a dough begins to form. You should be able to pinch it between your fingers and it will stay together. If the dough feels dry pulse in some water 1 teaspoon at a time until it comes together. Pulse in the quinoa crispies.
  • Form the dough into golf ball-sized truffles (you should get 14 - 16 balls). Place the ball on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 days.
