Vegan Lemon Coconut Protein Bites
INGREDIENTS (makes 10 balls)
- 8 pitted Medjool dates
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- Zest and juice of 1 large lemon
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup coconut flour
- 1 serving Inno Supps Clean Vegan Protein (Vanilla Birthday Cake)
- Pinch of salt
- 1-2 Tbsp almond milk, if needed
- Unsweetened shredded coconut, for rolling
Place dates, applesauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla in a large food processor. Process until dates look nearly pureed and mixture is very-well combined.
Add coconut flour, Inno Supps Clean Vegan Protein, and salt. Process until mixture forms a smooth ball of “dough.” (If mixture looks too dry, add almond milk.)
Roll into 10 balls.
Place about ½ cup coconut in a small bowl and roll balls in coconut, if desired. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Two bites have more than 5 grams of protein.
