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.
