Inline_Vanilla_BitesToday’s delicious guest recipe is offered up by Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer, and Health and Wellness Blogger Rachael Devaux. You can find her awesome insights and amazing recipes at Rachael’s Good Eats.

Rachael’s taken Primal Kitchen® Vanilla Collagen Fuel and turned it into an easy and tempting bite-sized snack you can have ready and stored for whenever hunger calls. With the sweet tastes of vanilla and coconut and the crunch of a variety of nuts and seeds, I find it’s perfect with some morning coffee or as an after dinner treat.

And if you’re someone who’s always looking for fast and easy options in the kitchen, this is the ticket!

Vanilla Coconut Collagen Bites

Servings: 14-16 balls

Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes


  • 1/3 cup raw cashews

  1. I don’t do much snacking, but these sound first rate. Great ingredients, nothing weird or artificial. As a tip, Whole Foods and many health food stores sell peanut butter and various other nut butters that they grind from fresh whole nuts. Unlike commercial peanut butter, no other ingredients are added.

  2. Can we sub beef gelating and another teaspoon of vanilla for the fuel?

  3. Would be nice to have substitutions for the Fuel product. Would hydrolysized collagen work?

  4. Can you please post the macros so I’ll know how many of these I can eat at a time (I kinda want to eat the whole batch…). Thanks!

    1. I agree! I’ve been limiting myself to just 3 or 4 at a time but it’s hard not to eat the entire batch at once.

  5. I made these earlier this week. They are excellent! I will definitely be making more of these. I’m hosting Thanksgiving for my family this year and will be serving these.

    1. I noticed that these have no sweetener at all, and the protein powder is sugar-free. Did you find these were sweet enough? Did you add any sweetener? (I barely eat any sugar, so I’m sure I will love them, but my family members expect a little sweetness!) Oh: just noticed it doesn’t say “unsweetened coconut”. If sweetened coconut is used, I bet that is more than enough sweetness.

  6. These are so amazing! Thank you for sharing. They’ve been a lifesaver during the holiday party season.

  7. I accidentally used Primal Fuel instead of Collagen Fuel. Thoughts?

  8. I made them. I got 15 balls. My macros came out to 4g carbs, 3 net carbs, 107 calories, 1g fiber, 9g fat, 5g protein per ball
