  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut, shredded, unsweetened
  • 1 scoop Isopure Zero Carb Vanilla Protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut, shredded, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoons Lakanto Golden sweetener


  1. Take 2 tablespoons of unsweetened shredded coconut and add to a dry skillet. Heat to medium heat and stir until toasted to a golden brown. Take off heat and spread out on a paper towel.

  2. In a bowl, add the protein powder, Lakanto sweetener and 2 tablespoons of unsweetened coconut. Mix well

  3. Add in the coconut oil and vanilla extract. Mix well with a fork to get the coconutl oil to combine with the dry ingredients. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

  4. Take out and form into balls and then roll into the coconut. Press the toasted coconut into the balls and then store in the refrigerator or freezer.

  5. If freezing let them thaw a few minutes before eating as they may get hard.

  6. *** Note *** If the batter is too loose, the refrigeration with harded the coconut oil and make it easier to use. If it's too dry you can add a teaspoon of cream or almond milk or more to get it into cookie batter like consistency.
