1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon raw honey
1 scoop Vega protein powder, peanut butter, chocolate, or vanilla
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter

Melt coconut oil and honey in microwave, about 10 seconds in a medium glass bowl. Add the protein powder, peanut butter, and cinnamon. Stir with a wooden spoon, adding a few drops of water at a time until mixture starts to clump to come together when pressed with your fingers.
