Chocolate hazelnut bites

any time • 80 minute prep, cool overnight

2/3 cup hazelnuts, roasted

4 omega-3 eggs % cup Splenda

1 tsp espresso coffee powder

5 scoops chocolate protein powder 2/3 cup pecan meal

2/3 cup crushed walnuts

2/3 cup unsalted peanuts, crushed

Preheat oven to 350°F. On a baking sheet, spread hazelnuts and roast them in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes. When finished, pull hazelnuts out of the oven and place onto a towel. Put 8 of the hazelnuts aside for later. Next, use the towel to rub the skin off all but the 8 hazelnuts you put aside.

With an electric mixer, mix together the omega-3 eggs, Splenda, and espresso coffee powder. Next, add protein powder, one scoop at a time, mixing thoroughly. Finally, add the de-skinned hazelnuts (leaving the 8 full hazelnuts aside), pecan meal, crushed walnuts and peanuts. Mix well. The mixture should become thick and dough like.

With wet hands, separate the mixture into 8 equal portions. For each portion, place one of the 8 hazelnuts set aside earlier into the center of the portion, rolling the portion into a small round shape until it completely covers the hazelnut in the center. Place each bite-sized shape onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the sheet into the oven for 10 minutes. When complete, pull from the oven and allow to cool. These can be eaten warm, or stored in an air-tight container in the fridge and served cool later.
