Total Time 15 mins

Ingredients
  

Dry ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup large flake oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder*
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk Start with 3/4 cup of the milk. If the mixture still seems dry, add 1 tbsp. at a time until you reach a texture that sticks together
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Optional toppings:

  • Drizzle of almond butter
  • Large flake oats
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. If the mixture is too dry, you may need to add an additional 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk. The mixture should be slightly sticky but not too wet.
  • Place 8 silicone molds into a muffin tin and evenly distribute the mixture amongst the cups.
  • Press mixture down with a spatula so that the surface is smooth. Top with optional toppings if desired. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes to allow mixture to solidify.
  • Once frozen, remove cups from silicon molds. Top with desired toppings.
  • Store cups in freezer in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container. Consume frozen or at room temperature.

Notes

*You can use a dairy-free or whey vanilla protein powder for this recipe, however you may need to adjust the quantity of almond milk depending on the type of protein powder you use since they all absorb liquid differently. See above for protein powder suggestions.
