How to Store these Protein Bites:
You will likely get around 20 bites out of this recipe. Since these contain Greek yogurt they will spoil if left on the counter so they should be stored in the refrigerator when you aren't eating them.
**Place them into an airtight container using wax paper or parchment paper in between each layer to prevent sticking.
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut flour or oat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp almond or vanilla extract
1 TBSP unsweetened vanilla almond milk
3-5 fresh strawberries
1 oz freeze-dried strawberries (measures to a little more than a cup)
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
In a food processor blend oats, flour, salt, and protein powder until combined (less than a minute).
Add yogurt, vanilla or almond extract, unsweetened almond milk, and fresh strawberries to the food processor. Blend to combine (about a minute). Add coconut oil and blend one last time, just long enough to evenly distribute the coconut oil.
Add the freeze-dried strawberries and pulse a few times. Don't over blend. There should be chunks of the dried strawberries.
Scoop out a spoonful of the batter and roll it into a ball. Repeat until you run out of batter (approximately 20 bites).
Place in the refrigerator to chill before eating
