Choco-Coco

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 scoop Epic Protein Chocolate Maca
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fine ground sea salt
  • 1/2 of a 3 oz chocolate bar (I used Green & Black’s 85% dark chocolate)
  • 3 ripe bananas, well mashed
  • 3 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, combine the bananas, coconut oil, raw honey and vanilla extract.  Set aside.  In another bowl, thoroughly mix together the oats, shredded coconut, protein powder, cinnamon, and salt.

Mix everything together until well combined.

Break the chocolate bar into small pieces and fold it in the mixture.  Drop dollops of the dough, each about 1 tablespoon in size, an inch apart, onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Place in the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes.

Let them cool and store in an airtight container in the freezer.  Warm them up for breakfast or grab one as a pre or post workout snack.  Disclaimer: you may not be able to stop at just one or two : )
