Raw Cashew & Chia Protein Bites

Gluten free, sugar free, low carb and packed with good fats and protein – these Raw Cashew & Chia Protein Bites are the perfect guilt-free sweet treat. Real food is the answer to most things in my opinion.


  • 250g cashews
  • 1 scoop (30g) of Bare Blends native WPI*
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1-1.5 tablespoons natvia, depending on desired sweetness
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon chia
  • ¼ cup water


  1. Blend the nuts, protein powder, cacao, natvia and cinnamon and add to a large bowl.
  2. Add the melted coconut oil and stir well.
  3. Add the chia seeds and water after soaking for 10 minutes.
  4. Use an ice cream scoop or spoon and form balls that sit nicely in the palm of your hand. To prevent sticking, add a touch of oil to your hands prior to doing so. Makes 8-10.
  5. Sprinkle with chia and/or protein powder and chill in the fridge before serving.

*Use either their dark cacao or vanilla bean – it’s your choice!


  • For dairy free or vegan, use a pea protein.
  • These can’t be made nut free, but you may like to try my Nut Free Bliss Bites.

    Hi Nadia, we don’t count macros here at TNN but if you copy and paste the recipe URL into My Fitness Pal you will get an approximate breakdown. I hope that helps.

    How long do these last and do they have to be kept in the fridge?

  6. Steph

    They would last a week or two.
