Maple Vanilla Latte Protein Bites

Ingredients:
 
1/2 cup finely chopped hazelnuts (you can use a coffee grinder)
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 to 1/2 cup natural nut butter (sunflower seed butter, cashew butter, peanut butter all work well)
1- 2 tbsp ground coffee
1/4 cup Vanilla bean Protein of choice (we like Sunwarrior vanilla or other vanilla pea protein, whey also works well)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 Tbsp vanilla bean extract
optional chopped chocolate or coconut sugar to roll protein balls in

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until a ‘dough’ like consistency has formed. If the dough is too sticky or thin add more almond flour or if its too thick had more maple syrup or nut butter.

Roll into balls then optionally coat in chocolate, more vanilla protein powder or coconut sugar.

Store in the fridge.
