  • 1 cup almond or cashew butter

  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup almond flour

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 2-3 scoops Dr. Nancy's Protein Powder*

  • 2-3 tbsp. water



1) Place the protein powder, nut butter, and flour into a large bowl with the coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla extract and honey.

2) Add 2 tablespoons of water and stir until a stiff dough forms. If the mixture is too dry, add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

3) Stir in the carob chips, and using a teaspoon, form dough into balls. Place balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment.

4) Chill for at least 30 minutes, then serve.

5) Store any extras in the refrigerator.

* Your choice of Dr Nancy’s Plant Protein or Whey Protein shake. I recommend Chocolate!
