One of my favorite people gave me one of my favorite recipes! Teresa is a personal trainer and healthy chef. Check out her Facebook page here for The Power of Healthy Eating! I love a good recipe combo of healthy and easy and quick, and this is exactly that.
Throw this stuff into a food processor:
-15 pitted dates (sometimes they’re not pitted so I always check)
-2 tbsp almond butter or cashew butter. Use sesame seed butter if you have a nut allergy
-1 scoop protein powder, optional
1. Pulse and then just blend for a bit. Then I like to add about 2 tbsp water. A dough will form. You can adjust as needed by adding more dates or more nut butter.
2. Unplug the processor and remove blade. Ok now we’re safe! Roll the dough into little balls. You can then roll them in stuff like shredded coconut and/or cacao nibs if you’d like. But you don’t have to! Store in a container in the fridge. They keep fresh for about 5 days.
Note: dates are high in natural sugar, so don’t eat them all in one sitting! They’re rich and filling so you won’t need to eat a lot at once.
