  • 5 teaspoons Schisandra berry powder
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons bittersweet chopped chocolate chips (optional, but so good)

Wet Ingredients

  5. Roll in dried unsweetened coconut flakes to finish or extra bittersweet chips if you are not overly sensitive to caffeine.
