These low carb chocolate coconut protein bites take only minutes to make and are great to have on hand for a healthy, sweet treat. Each bite is only 0.5g net carbs.
I’ve been trying hard to stick to my low carb diet lately and it’s been pretty easy except for sweets. I just need something sweet after a meal or as a mid afternoon snack. So I came up with these low carb chocolate coconut protein bites. These are pretty filling to me so I only eat one or two at most and they are only 0.6g net carbs each.
I’m gearing up for the new year and I even have a low carb ebook cookbook coming up. So I really want to be in the swing of things for the new year. I find that if I plan, everything works out better for me. As I mentioned sweets are big one for me so I like to have something on hand for all my cravings.
- Chocolates: chocolate peanut butter candies and favorite dark chocolate
- Cookies: low carb tea cookies
- Pumpkin: 1 minute muffins, cheesecake, and pies
- Cheesecake: raspberry no bake, peanut butter bites, berry bites and chocolate parfait
- Fudge: maple freezer fudge
- Scones: peach scones and berry scones
These are another recipe I like to make. I like using vanilla protein powder because it add sweetness with the added benefit of protein. These really fill me up for some reason. I’m not sure if it’s the almond butter or the protein powder but just 2 bites in the afternoon will keep me full until dinner. The net carb count will depend on what protein powder you are using. I used a new one that I just bought called CarbThin. It has zero carb so I’m giving it a try.
Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Protein Bites
So to make these you really just mix 5 ingredients in a bowl and then roll them into balls. The balls are sticky so make sure to roll them in some extra cocoa powder or even ground coconut flakes if you want. I kept mine in the freezer but they were pretty hard. You can also keep them in the refrigerator for a more truffle like bite. I hope you like these. They really fill me up and satisfy my chocolate cravings. The nutritional information for 1 bite is:
59 cals / 5.0g fat / 1.3g carbs / 0.8g fiber / 2.8g protein = 0.5g net carbs
- Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well using a fork to integrate everything.
- Form into small bite size balls.
- Roll in extra cocoa powder or coconut if you wish.
- Store in the freezer.
