I’ve been snacking on these in my stories for the past week and I’m so excited to finally bring you the recipe! Luteal phase fat balls! I know, I know. Who actually wants to eat something called fat balls? Well, these are the ultimate source of healthy fatty acids + energy boosting alchemy. Sugar cravings take over my life. That’s right, I still fall victim time and time again to the most powerful drug out there. These energy bites provide the perfect taste to curb those cravings and your endocrine system will thank you for it!

Make it

In a food processor or blender, mix all ingredient together. Roll into balls. Roll in extra coconut flour and a touch of cinnamon. Store in the fridge for freshness. Devour. (Also amazing topped with some probiotic coconut yogurt, hint hint.)
