You’ve Got to Try These!

Don’t let the dates intimidate you – we had no idea they were even in there – the peanut butter and chocolate flavors are so delicious!

These were the perfect snack to have after our 45 minute high-energy evening classes.  Thank you Shahreen for supplying our much needed protein and sweet fix!

(P.S.These protein balls even go great with some Rosé!)




1 cup pitted dates

1/2 cup almonds

1/3 cup peanut butter

1/8 cup cacao powder

2 tbsp. maple syrup

2 tbsp. hemp seeds

1 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 cup mini chocolate chips




Add almonds to a food processor and pulse until you get coarse crumbs

(Set 2 tbsp. aside to roll the balls in later)


Add dates, peanut butter, cacao powder, maple syrup, cinnamon, sea salt and hemp seeds in a food processor


Pulse on and off until you get a smooth, thick malleable texture.  The ‘dough’ should come together in a ball.


Put mixture into a small mixing bowl and stir in mini chocolate chips.


Form into balls and roll in saved ground almonds or more hemp seeds.


Set on a tray and refrigerate for 1 hour or freeze for 15 minutes.  Best when cold.
