No Bake Nutty Mexican Chocolate Protein Bites



  • 1/4 cup crushed almond meal or coconut flour for nut free version
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts (can’t have nuts? try banana chips)
  • 1/31/2 cup nut butter ( PB, almond, or sunflower seed is awesome for this recipe of course)
  • 68 tbsp Chocolate Protein Powder (I use
  • Growing Naturals
  • Brown Rice or Pea)
  • 34 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne or chili pepper (more if you like spicy)
  • 23 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup raw honey, agave, or maple syrup.
  • Optional-
  • mexican hot chocolate powder (for rolling them in after you freeze)
  • Optional
  • – handful of dark chocolate chips


  1. Chop nuts in food processor, or you can buy them already chopped. Transfer into a large bowl and add in all the remaining ingredients with the nut butter and  honey/maple syrup being the last . Mix well ( I use my hands) and roll into bite size balls. Coat bites with extra cocoa powder/cinnamon. I usually coat them after they have set in freezer for at least 5-10 minutes. Then return to freezer after.
  2. Makes anywhere between 18-22 balls. Just depends how big or small you roll them. Mine are usually around 18grams
  3. Freeze or keep in refrigerator to maintain freshness.
