You guys. I wanted to bring you a lemon bar flavored protein bite recipes, but if you ever do any experimenting in the kitchen, you know that not every recipe comes out perfectly the first time. And this lemon bar flavored protein bite recipe is just not ready. I won’t give up, though.
Now, because this recipe uses really yummy (and pricey) ingredients, I didn’t want it to go to waste. Therefore, I bring to you, a deconstructed protein ball Lemon Crumble. It’s freaking delicious. If you like lemon.
I’ve been using this stuff on top of my yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, smoothies, and straight up off of a spoon. I liked it on top of my SIggi’s yogurt SO MUCH, that the next morning for breakfast I did the same thing (with yogurt and strawberries) on top of sourdough toast.
It was perfect. Definitely give it a try!
Hope you like it!
1.25 cups walnuts (or almonds or cashews)
1 cup oats
1 scoop protein powder
3/4 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 Tb. cashew butter (or almond)
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. lemon zest
2 Tbs. honey or maple syrup
pinch of Himalayan salt
Blend all of the ingredients together using a food processor. It will not fully form a ball, but keep blending for a couple of minutes until the ingredients start to come together.
“Ball up” the “dough” as best you can. I placed mine into a bowl and pressed down on it.
Refrigerate the dough for at least an hour.
Transfer to a glass jar with a tight seal. You should see that it crumbles and doesn’t stay together. This didn’t last longer than a week but it would easily last a couple of weeks refrigerated.
