Hi my lovelies!

I am finally sharing with you my beloved fat ball recipe! I’ve been posting them on Instagram for sometime and have been asked by a lot of you, what the basic ingredients are. I thought it was finally time to bring them into the blog and share the basic recipe and how you can switch these babes up. Here’s the big thing HIGH fat HIGH protein LOW sugar. These are addicting and honestly don’t last long around here. I make a batch at least twice a week sometimes if my week is gonna be extra busy I will knock out two batches. I keep them in the freezer and pop them out for a few minutes before enjoying them.

I love eating them as is.

I love adding them to my fat bowls. aka pure goodness.

They are amazing in smoothies.

Taste way too good with some Eating Evolved chocolate.

Point is you’re gonna love them and thank me for sharing these high fat beauties with you.

I have received a few question on why I eat high fat/high protein/ low sugar fat balls and I have noticed with time that this kind of style of eating works best for treating my manic depressive and PCOS.

Also since..

I am a hugeeeeee snacker and will probably have a snack around 3-4 and again right before bed, I love having these around. I eat dinner on the early side to be in bed by 10 and it works for me.

Hi! I'm Andrea. A girl who loves her chocolate as much as her greens.

  1. I am not a huge fan of coconuts. I have tried many times but I don’t know why. Not my thing. The recipe looks quite good though. Is there anyway to replace the coconut with something else?

  2. Ohhh these sound yummy! Anything healthy to avoid my sweet tooth is great in my opinion. Love coconut, going to have to try out your recipe! Thanks for sharing

  3. I have heard about these and wondered about them. The recipe looks pretty easy. I am wondering if I could add some PB2 to them or protein powder? Oh wait, is that what the protein peptides are?

  4. I’ve never had these before! It sounds like it’s going to help fill you up without making you feel guilty! I love that it’s low in sugar. Looks like it’s easy to make and can be served in different ways!

  5. These sound amazing! My husband and I just started a new diet and we have been looking for a way to satiate our sweet tooth. These would work perfectly and are so healthy to boot!

  6. I have never tried anything like this, so I am excited to test it out! I love coconut, so I am sure they are amazing!

  7. Oh, my aren’t those perfect little treats. You just made this little vegan very happy by sharing that recipe. I love energy bites and bars!

  8. These sound like a delicious and healthy snack to have when you’re on the go or after a workout. I like to eat small meals and snack throughout the day so I’ll have to try these.

  9. What a great idea for a snack! These coconuts look so yummy and delicious! Would love to try them!

  10. These look amazing, I will definitely have to try the recipe out for myself. I would probably eat them as is too, this seems like the perfect snack.

  11. I love coconut and try to use coconut oil as much as I can (definitely as a substitute for butter). These are packed with amazing, good for you ingredients, and sound delicious, too! Love that you can pop them in the freezer and help yourself when you need a little snack!

  12. Honestly, I do not fancy the coconuts much but I cant help looking these pictures, so good. I think I would try the recipe once. Maybe it helps change my taste. Thank for your post!

  13. Ooh this looks so good! I love coconut and I’ve been wanting to try out fat balls. They’re so good for you and taste so good!

  14. My husband is a tad coconut obsessed so I definitely want to make him these. High protein and low sugar is a winner in my books and these look delish!
