2 tbs / 30g coconut oil
2 tbs almond butter or 30g ground almonds
2 tbs flaxmeal
1 tsp cinnamon
1 sachet splenda

Melt the coconut oil and then mix all ingredients together well. Take a spoonful of the mixture, form it into a ball with your hands and flatten it. Make as many as you have mixture for. Then put into the fridge or freezer for a couple of hours. Keep them cold.

Macros per batch: cals 501, protein 13g, fat 49g, net carbs 2g.

These are nice, but because they are very small for the amount of calories in them, I suggest keeping them as a pre-workout snack. They should supply plenty of energy without filling your stomach too much.

Anyone have any ideas of what I could use to bulk these up so they are no so calorie dense and so I can sit there watching the simpsons and eat a whole tub of them? :cool: :D

No, can't see anyway round the calories.

How about something that you have to shell, like pumpkin seeds, for mindless munching?

Wouldn't these be pretty high in saturated fat because of the coconut oil?

Saturated fat is good for you. It keeps your immune system strong, your bones dense and your testosterone levels high. And no, it won't clog up your arteries.

Transfats are the evil ones that have been causing the problems that were blamed on saturated fats.

Coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats you can eat.

Excellent! I used pecans this time, because all my almonds were gone.
