  • In a medium bowl, stir together the coconut flour, collagen protein powder, cinnamon, salt, and mini chocolate chips.
  • Add the pumpkin puree, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and Stevia (if using) and stir together until a thick dough forms. The coconut oil should be soft when added but not melted.
  • Roll the dough into 1-inch balls - the dough shouldn't be sticky and should be easy to roll.
  • These have the best texture when stored at room temperature, but can be stored in the fridge and eaten chilled as well.
  • Enjoy!


You may need a different amount of liquid in this recipe depending on the protein powder you use. I haven't tried this recipe with other protein powders Collagen protein doesn't absorb a lot of water, so if you use a pea protein or brown rice protein you may have to add more liquid (maple syrup or coconut oil) 1 tablespoon at a time to get the consistency that is needed to roll these into balls
