I was so excited to make these, I had my good friend Brigitte come and help me. 🙂 These protein balls are so delicious, and good for you! I have adapted this recipe from another paleo website. I hope you will enjoy these. They are rich too! You will be satisfied with just one! 🙂 They are extremely high in protein, raw, vegan, gluten free, have a low glycemic index, and are filled with super nutrients. 🙂 I specifically chose the ingredients in here because they are all low in sugar. Carob chips, coconut nectar, and unsweetened cocoa powder all offer a delicious, nutritious alternative to the junk filled in most protein bars. They’re such a delicious treat and even healthy enough to eat for breakfast! 🙂

1.5 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut (and another 1/4 cup to garnish later)
