Smart Cocoa Energy Nuggets
Our energy nuggets are just that…ENERGIZING! They are a great balance of carbohydrate, protein and fat with the added functional benefits of our Unsweetened Smart Cocoa! Great to have as a snack or before/after exercise!
3/4 cup nut butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
2 cups oats
2 tablespoons Birota Foods Smart Cocoa or Unsweetened Smart Cocoa
15 - 20 grams chocolate protein powder (whey isolate or plant based)
Place nut butter, coconut oil and honey in a bowl and mix until the mixture is smooth. You may need to microwave it for a short time or heat in a bowl over boiling water (do not immerse in the water).
Once the mixture is smooth, stir in oats, Smart Cocoa and protein powder. The mixture will look a bit dry but will come together as you stir it.
Partition the mixture into whatever shape you like (circles/nuggets or flat like small pancakes), place on a non-stick dish in the refrigerator for 1 - 2 hours and enjoy!
