This recipe is a bit of a mix of a few different protein ball recipes. It calls for a lot of different types of organic ingredients but they are all good ones to have on hand.
What you will need:
- 1 3/4 oz raw or dark chocolate (7 of the 1/4 oz squares) chopped in large chunks
- 1 1/4 cup raw cashews
- 10 pitted dates (if you store then in the fridge, bring them to room temperature)
- 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2/3 cup cacao nibs
First make sure your dates are at room temperature. They are much easier to work with this way.
In a food processor, grind the cashew nuts down on their own.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well blended and sticking together.
Empty the contents into a bowl.
With your hand make small balls – the size to your liking – and store in an tupperware container in the fridge for at least an hour.
*adding some dried cranberries adds a nice twist to this recipe.
