  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup toasted coconut butter (recipe below) or sub almond butter if eating
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup vanilla or neutral protein powder* (my favorite below)
  • 1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon


  1. Mix all ingredients in a food processor.
  2. When well-combined and the dough has formed, spoon out the dough and roll into balls.
  3. Place on a parchment paper lined plate or tupperware and store in the fridge until ready to eat!

Recipe Notes

*The protein powder I use is here. For truly AIP compliant protein powder, I recommend using Collagen Protein.

**Peanut butter does NOT seem to work well in this recipe - too oily, perhaps! FYI.
