Most of my protein bite recipes come at the request from my brother, and these snickerdoodle collagen bites are no different.
Bri loves anything cinnamon (almost as much as he loves the NY Giants and the Marine Corps 🙂 ), so snickerdoodle collagen bites were basically at the top of my to-make list when I started cranking out protein bite recipes. He’s pretty much my #1 taste tester when it comes to these lil guys, along with his Marine buddies at training.
While I am from NJ, and will forever defend it to anyone who wants to talk sh*t, I have loved living in DC for the past (almost) 3 years.
Why??? Not only am I close to all of my Virginia Tech friends (GO HOKIES), but I’m also close to my brother. He played baseball at the Naval Academy from 2013-2017 and is now going through Marine Training in Quantico, VA, just a short 45 min down the road (or 30 if he is driving…). You’ll be seeing a lot of treats here that have been Brian-approved, and I can guarantee you that most of them will have cinnamon in them haha. I am seriously so incredibly proud of him for all he’s doing, so the least I can do is make sure he is always stocked with treats, right???
These snickerdoodle collagen bites are perfectly sweet and have THE best texture, if I do say do myself. Think Dunkin Donuts Munchkin meets chewy snickerdoodle cookie. Yup. Make these ASAP.Print
Soft texture. Cinnamony flavor. Can’t be bad, right???
- 8 pitted Medjool dates, soaked in hot water for 15 min to soften them up
- 3 TBSP Georgia Grinders Maple Caramel Almond Butter
- 1-2 TBSP agave nectar, depending on desired sweetness
- 2 TSP Trader Joe’s Tahini
- 3 TSP cinnamon
- 1/8 cup Thrive Market coconut flour
- 3 scoops Collagen peptides (I like Great Lakes, Vital Proteins and Bulletproof)
Combine the following ingredients in a food processor until a paste forms:
- Dates, almond butter, agave, tahini
Add in the Cinnamon, Coconut flour and collagen peptides and pulse until a dough forms.
Refrigerate dough before using a cookie dough scooper to form into balls. Store in the fridge for up to 10 days.
- Equipment needed: Food processor
- Almond flour could be used in place of coconut flour. Add a little at a time, however, until you get the desired consistency.
