Makes 12 protein bites
1/2 cup (drippy, organic) nut butter + pinch of salt if not salted
1 packet ALOHA Daily Good Chocolate
2 servings ALOHA Protein - I used vanilla
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons ALOHA Superfood Chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons almond milk
In a large bowl, add all ingredients except for the ALOHA Chocolate. Mix together using a wooden spoon until ingredients are well combined and resemble a soft cookie dough. If it seems to dry add a teaspoon or two more almond milk. Stir in chocolate chips, then roll into 12 tablespoon sized balls. Transfer to an airtight container and store in fridge.
