Toasted Coconut PB Protein Bites

Toasted Coconut PB Protein Bites

If you love coconut, you’ll love these bites!  They’re bite-sized perfection if you have a sweet tooth, but are also super satisfying and filling.  I tried out some other recipe versions for protein balls online, but felt like they were lacking some *Oomph.  I began to formulate my own version, this is what I came up with.  Simple to make and a good blend of protein, carbs and fat.  Honestly, naming this recipe was harder than actually making it!  Roll-em up ahead of time and enjoy them as a pre or post workout snack, mid-afternoon pick me up or after dinner treat.
