Coconut Sea-Salt Collagen Balls
Coconut Sea Salt + Chocolate Chip Fat Balls Recipe with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides.
I'm so excited to share this quick and easy recipe! These coconut 'fat balls' are super simple to make, no baking required, low in sugar, and so delicious. They are also so versatile, I had a hard time figuring out what to name them. With coconut, vanilla, sea salt, chocolate chips, collagen, etc. they are delicious on their own, or you can get creative and add coco powder, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.
I love adding the Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides - Buy Here! into this recipe because it adds protein with no change in taste and the benefits of collagen are endless, and especially great for hair, nail, and skin quality. Many of us lack collagen in our modern diets so it's nice to sneak it in whenever possible!
Thank you to my mama for the original recipe! A couple weeks ago she had me blindly try Hail Merry Caramel Sea Salt macaroons and this recipe that she had made. They were both delicious but I could really tell a difference in taste with her homemade recipe, and knew I had to share it. Since then my boyfriend and I have made it a couple of times in less than 10 minutes (he LOVES them too), in fact this last Sunday before Game of Thrones we whipped some out last minute and even doubled the recipe in 10-15 minutes, even with taking these pictures in between.
I've already shared the recipe with a couple of friends who have made them for bridal parties, brunches, or just to have on hand for themselves, and everyone just loves them, even with being low sugar, low carb, high(er) in healthy fats, refined sugar free, dairy free, gluten free... the list could go on and on, so here's the recipe!
Makes about 24 small to medium size balls - very easy to double or triple.
There are only about 4 grams of sugar per ball.
1 cup almond flour
1/8 cup maple sugar
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Optional (but recommended!):
2-3 scoops of collagen or protein powder of choice
Dark chocolate chips- 2-3 chips per ball or more!
I used 63% dark chocolate chips
Simply add dry ingredients in a bowl, mix, then add wet ingredients, mix everything together and roll into balls! I would recommend storing in the fridge and enjoying within a week or in the freezer for a longer period of time.
The finished product!
