Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons vegan protein powder (I use Sun Warrior vanilla)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ripe banana, cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • 1 cup shredded toasted coconut, ground

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine oats, walnuts, protein powder, cocoa powder, and cinnamon. Pulse until well mixed. Add the banana, almond butter, and maple syrup. Pulse until combined. Add the cranberries and flaxseeds, and pulse until combined.
  2. Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls. If the balls are too soft, refrigerate or freeze them for an hour. Roll the balls in the ground coconut.
  3. Transfer to a platter and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.

    I just made these and they are so delicious! Not too sweet like the date-based power bites.
    Thank you!
