Protein Coffee Bites

Protein Coffee Bites are an innovative, delicious snack that is perfect for on-the-go snacking. They are made with real coffee and high-quality protein, giving them a unique flavor that is both energizing and satisfying. Each bite is packed with protein, making them an excellent source of fuel for the active individual.

I use these protein-rich coffee bites a lot when I need a quick pick-me-up for more energy and brain fuel. I try to limit my use of caffeine after 2-3 pm, but before 2 pm, I have no issues with coffee because, genetically, I have an intermediate metabolism of caffeine. If you believe you may be a slow metabolizer of caffeine, I would limit your coffee intake to 1 cup early in the morning… and definitely, no coffee protein bites!

There has been so much bad stuff about consuming coffee in the blogosphere. It is good to make sure your coffee does not have mold in it and is organic. We love small batches that the local coffee shops sell or Bulletproof brand.

Coffee is a good source of antioxidants, which can help protect the body against damage from free radicals. The caffeine in coffee can also boost energy levels, improve mental focus and alertness, and can even help to improve physical performance. Studies have also suggested that coffee consumption may be associated with a lower risk of certain diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and liver disease. Additionally, the polyphenols present in coffee may help to lower the risk of certain types of cancer. However, excessive caffeine intake can lead to negative side effects such as jitteriness, anxiety, and insomnia. It is recommended to consume coffee in moderation.

These tasty treats contain no added sugars, artificial ingredients, or preservatives, making them a healthy choice for anyone looking for a guilt-free snack. The coffee is brewed fresh and provides an intense, full-bodied flavor that is complemented by the addition of protein. The protein works to keep you feeling full and energized throughout the day.

Protein Coffee Bites are an ideal snack option for anyone looking for a convenient, healthy snack. They provide a boost of energy and protein to help you power through your day.

Try making the same protein-rich bites with matcha green tea, but I was greatly disappointed because all the matcha powder went down to the bottom of the dish while it was in the fridge.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups brewed coffee (or Americano espresso, depending on your preference)

  • 1/2 cup cold water

  • 2 teaspoons monk fruit sweetener

  • 6 tablespoons grass-fed collagen

  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or substitute with monk-fruit sweetener (I am not a fan of stevia aftertaste, but it is just a personal preference)

  • coconut sugar or monk-fruit sweetener for sprinkles

Directions

  • Add 1/2 cup of cold water to a bowl or liquid measuring cup and sprinkle with gelatin powder.
  • Whisk together to combine and allow to sit for 3-5 minutes to “bloom.”
  • Pour the remaining (3 cups) of coffee and sweetener into a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until almost boiling.
  • Remove from heat and add the bloomed water/gelatin mixture and collagen. Mix to dissolve, or use an immersion blender to mix the mixture.
  • Pour into an 8×8 glass baking dish.
  • Refrigerate for about 4 hours, or until set. Cut into pieces and sprinkle with coconut sugar or monk fruit sweetener.
  • Enjoy!
