50-Calorie Chocolate Protein “Truffles”

These taste too-good-to-be-true!  A good alternative to a pre-workout protein bar.

ecbb0866835a692a_bite.xxxlarge_2x1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup golden raisins
3/4 scoop chocolate plant-based protein powder (1 scoop is about 35 grams; I used Vega)
Pinch of sea salt
1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut

Add almonds to a food processor or high-speed blender. Process nuts a few minutes until a creamy almond butter forms.

Add raisins and mix until smooth.

Add in the protein powder and salt; blend until thoroughly combined.

Roll dough into 12 balls (make them smallish), coat each ball with shredded coconut, and place on a plate or pan.

Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Store uneaten balls in an airtight container.
