CHOCOLATE BROWNIE ENERGY BITES

Carbs per serve 6.56g 

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup coconut oil or butter (if using coconut oil, it will be quite greasy but will re-absorb after bites are formed)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup Swerve Sweetener
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup almond flour
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup XLR8 BURN Vanilla protein powder
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 tbsp coconut flour
CHOCOLATE COATING (OPTIONAL)

80g sugar-free dark chocolate chopped
1 tbsp butter or coconut oil
INSTRUCTIONS
ENERGY BITES:
Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter or coconut oil. Stir in cocoa powder and sweetener, then whisk in egg and cook over low 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, shredded coconut, protein powder, chopped nuts and coconut flour. Stir into saucepan until well combined.
Using about a tablespoon at a time, roll mixture into balls with your hands and lay on prepared baking sheet. You should get about 24 balls. Set baking sheet in the freezer.
CHOCOLATE COATING:
Set a small metal or ceramic mixing bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.
Melt chocolate and butter or oil together until melted.
One at a time, drop frozen energy bites into chocolate and coat well. Use a fork to lift out and gently tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Set back on waxed paper lined baking sheet. Let set.
