  1. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat.
  2. Blend the cashews, dates, apricots, almond butter and protein powder in a food processor.
  3. Remove the coconut oil from heat and let it cool down for a few minutes.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and mix in the water, coconut oil and salt.
  5. Roll the mixture into small, bite size balls (about an inch wide).
  6. Pour some unsweetened shredded coconut into a large plate and roll the balls into it.

Recipe Notes

* I used 1 cup and kept the remaining coconut for another recipe.

**You may replace whey protein powder with plant-based protein powder for a vegan version. When doing so, you should gradually add some warm water until the dough is consistent enough to be shaped into balls, as this type of powder will soak much more moisture than regular whey.
