Chocolate Coconut Protein Balls

These turned out wayyyy too good!!  I ate 6 already.... But I don't feel guilty at all!!  They have awesome ingredients, and are soo tasty!!
You'll need:
2tbsp unsweetened reduced fat coconut - toast at 350 for 8 minutes
1/2 cup coconut flour
3 scoops chocolate protein powder (I use Body Fortress)
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1tbsp vanilla extract
Stevia (I used 1/2 tsp powder, and a dash of liquid)
4tbsp liquid egg whites
1/4 cup almond butter (creamy)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash salt (I use salt substitute)
2tsp reduced sodium baking powder
1/4 cup carob chips
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine dry ingredients.  Add wet ingredients, and mix well (use a fork or wooden spoon).
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll dough into balls (should make about 24)
Space evenly on baking sheet (though they won't really flatten or spread when you bake them)
Bake 7-9 min (8 min was perfect in my oven)
Let cool 5 min on baking sheet.  Move to wire rack and cool completely.
Store in airtight container in fridge.
Makes 24 servings (1 'ball' each)
