What you need:
- Dates (soaked)
- Raw Almonds
- Raw Cashews
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
- Chia Seeds
Soak 5-7 whole dates in water for 10 minutes.
Grind raw almonds and cashews in mini food processor – (like this one on Amazon).
(Crushed almonds/cashews above) I never measure any of the ingredients!
Add cocoa powder, coconut flakes and chia seeds and grind again.
Remove dry mixture and put aside.
Remove dates from water and remove the pits. I rip them apart a bit and put them into the mini food processor. I also add some of the soaking water to help chop them.
Sometimes I add more of the soaking water, depending on how much dry mixture I add. I don’t really measure any of this, so sometimes I need more water.
Mix the dry mixture back in with the chopped dates and pulse the food processor a few times. Then I roll small sections of the mixture in my hands to create a ball shape. Stick them in the fridge and enjoy!
I like to have one or two after lunch/dinner or before a workout!
