As I was mixing up the ingredients and I started to roll them into balls, my ten year old overheard me complaining that they were too sticky. Thankfully he knew what to do, "Hey Mom we have coconut, just roll them in coconut!"
And so that's exactly what I did!
sampling I heard someone yell out "These are just like Almond Joys"
And ohhh, what a JOY they were!
1 jar of natural creamy almond butter
1/4 c ( or less) honey
3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
2 packets of TLS chocolate whey protein (or TLS chocolate
nutrition shake would probably work- it would just change the nutrition facts)
3/4 C unsweetened shredded coconut
Optional (probably not on your approved food list)- a handful of mini chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients except the coconut and form into balls.
Roll in coconut.
Store in airtight container in the freezer (or the fridge if you like them soft.)
