  • 2 tbsp chocolate protein powder

  • pinch sea salt

Instructions

  • You may need to add a tbsp or 2 of melted coconut oil if your mixture is too dry. You'll want it to be the texture of edible cookie dough!

  • Use a cookie scoop or roll into balls & place in the freezer to firm up!
  • You can also dunk them in melted chocolate & top with sea salt if you’re feeling extra fancy!
