I have been making these bites since you have posted the recipe. I use a plant based protein powder, which does end up more crumbly compared to whey, if you’re having this issue, this is why. Plant based powders also absorb better with water. I still use milk because it’s creamier. I have been tinkering with it on and off. I wanted to share my experience to help anyone I can 🙂
I decided to take a baker’s approach by sifting the dry ingredients then whisking, set aside. Then whisk your wet ingredients, including the nut butter of choice. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well combined then fold in chocolate chips 🙂
If you’re still struggling with crumbly, keep adding milk/water and honey/syrup until desired consistency.
If it is too wet, keep adding 1/2 TBsp of almond flour with a 1 tsp of cocoa until desired consistency.
I really hope this helps someone 🙂

How can these be “protein” bites, they are the lowest macro…
Hi – my dough came out so dry it was crumbling. Added a touch more honey and then about 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil and nothing helped any suggestions? Followed recipe exactly before the wet additions
Just keep adding water or milk, whatever you’re using, until you get your desired consistency.
I’ve been making these for awhile and tinkering with it. I have been mixing the dry and wet ingredients separately before mixing all together. That has been helping a lot with a balanced consistency. Hope this helps!
