College Cooking: Superfood Power Bites (V, GF, Raw)

Prep time: 10 minutes | Fridge time: 30 min - 1 hour | Yields: 8-10 bites (serves: 4-5)

Depending on what brand you use all the ingredients below can be certified raw, gluten-free and vegan.

1 cup Coconut flour
1/2 cup Peanut flour
2 tsp Lucuma powder
1 tsp Golden Flaxseed meal
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp raw Cacao powder
1 tsp raw Coconut Sugar
1/2 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup*
1/3 cup virgin Coconut Oil, melted
1/8 cup raw nut or seed milk **
1/2 tsp vegan chocolate Shakeology (optional)
1/2 tsp Garden of Life raw fiber (optional)
1 drop liquid flavored Stevia (optional)
1/2 tsp raw cane sugar (optional)

* I used Grade A (medium amber) syrup, but use Grade B if you plan to bake these out and throw a teaspoon of baking powder in the mix.
** or any non-dairy milk. I used a lightly sweetened vanilla cashew milk I made.

Line a small glass pan with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl add your flours and powders. Mix with a fork.
Add in your wet ingredients. Begin folding and kneading the dough, but don't overwork it.
Wipe the inside of the bowl that contained your coconut oil to lightly grease your fingers. Roll dough into balls. Roll in cane sugar, if desired. Place in your pan and cover.
Refrigerate for an hour if you can stand to wait that long.
Serve with a tall glass of your favorite mylk. Enjoy.

I like to have one of these in the morning with my banana coconut water because the fiber keeps me full and the vitamins keep me focused. They are also a good post-workout treat because they are packed with protein for muscle repair. They're a good snack for any time really!

Create, share, love at first bite!
