organic whey protein brownie bitesHere's another innovative recipe from Organic Olivia that uses unlikely materials to create a delicious treat. At Source Organic we stress that only the best ingredients are used and that's why we are proud to offer the highest quality, organic whey protein on the market. No other whey protein company comes exclusively from California farms where our farmers' cows are able to spend over 80% of the year out in the fields rather than stuck in barn. When looking for a pure organic whey protein, look no further than Source Organic Whey.

Bites:
1- 15 oz can low-sodium or no salt added organic black beans, rinsed and drained, patted dry
1 scoop Source Organic Whey Protein 
1 & 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. coconut nectar (or maple syrup, agave, honey, any liquid works)
5 tbsp. dutch-processed cocoa powder (regular works fine, I prefer dutch)

Chocolate coating:
3 oz. dark chocolate of your choice
1 tsp. coconut oil

1. Place beans, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and coconut nectar in a food processor. Process until smooth.
2. Add in cocoa powder and protein powder, process again.
3. Chill batter in the fridge for 25 minutes.
4. Take it out and shape it into balls.
5. Melt your chocolate and coconut oil using the double boiler method and roll each ball in the coating. Refrigerate until the coating is solid!

Dear NorCal Organic Customer,

We have always been a company focused on providing the highest quality products to our customers. This includes our packaging. Recently we started using a new type of bag with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic we use. This was based on our company's environmental goals as well as many customer requests.

The new bags have an inner bag that protects the ingredients inside from air and moisture. The second layer of the bag, instead of using a plastic, we chose to use a paper based layer made from wood pulp. This reduced the plastic in our bags by 60%. Unfortunately, we have heard from a number of customers that this new bag is not durable enough and they have received bags that were damaged in shipping.

First, we apologize if you have been one of the customers that has received a damaged bag. Second, we are working as quickly as we can to bring back our previous bag packaging that provided the durability needed for our product to survive what can be a rough shipping experience.

Please reach out to us if you have received a damaged bag so we can take care of this.
Thank you for your understanding and patience, we will work as quickly as we can to correct this.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

NorCal Organic
