Gluten Free White Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Protein Balls

gluten free coconut white chocolate macadamia protein balls

I personally find that I have more energy and less of a crash in the afternoon when I eat gluten free, especially early in my day. I also have a number of friends who can’t eat gluten, so I like to experiment with new recipes I can use when they come to visit. Both ladies are in my book club so they really appreciate when I provide a gluten free option or two.

Recently, I learned that Walmart has a wonderful collection of gluten free products. They even hosted gluten-free event across the country helping to educate their customers about these products. Walmart has a great variety of gluten free products from pizza to cookies, chips, breads and more. I decided to try the LUNA bar line from Clif Bar.

Created by and for women, LUNA bars are packed with the vitamins and minerals our bodies need to stay healthy. Wholesome nourishment and delicious indulgence, they are 70% organic and now…all GLUTEN FREE!

While I love a good snack bar, I also like to get creative with my recipes and repurpose snack bars into another recipe. That said, I also like creating recipes that are super easy to make. I came up with the idea for Coconut White Chocolate Macadamia Protein Balls. The LUNA bars already have 9 grams of protein, but this snack kicks it up a notch with greek yogurt and coconut. Here is my creation broken down step by step. I used 2 LUNA bars to create 8 balls. Each ball is quite filling so I’d say this serves 3-4 people or freeze them for future use.

Put LUNA Bars in microwave for about 10-15 seconds to soften.

Break up LUNA bars with a fork and put in a bowl.
