Gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free, NUT-FREE!!

 

These delightful treats are great desserts, packed with nutrients, antioxidants and energy they can also be used as a pre-workout or just a pick me up during the day.

 

I wanted to make something that everyone at our clinic could enjoy, as I know that many people have very particular diets due to allergies. These bad boys are easy to make and a little goes a long way!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • Approx. 12 Pitted & soaked dates
  • ¼ cup date water
  • ½ cup Shredded Coconut
  • ¼ cup Goji Berries
  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 1 packet Sunwarrior Chocolate protein
  • 1 tbsp Cacao Powder
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seed butter

 

How to create:

  • In a food processor grind the dates down as much as possible then add the goji and coconut. When you can’t grind it anymore add the pumpkin seed butter, date water and chia seeds, blend more. Last, add the cacao powder and Sunwarrior protein (or any protein powder of your choice). When it won’t mix any more take it out and place in a separate bowl.
  • At this point I had to mix the powders in a bit more with a spoon because my food processor couldn’t mix this giant glob of sticky deliciousness.
  • I didn’t want the mixture to stick to my hands so I rubbed a bit of cacao powder on my hands to enable me to roll the balls easier. This also makes the outside more chocolate-y. YUM.
  • This made about 12 snacks but it depends on how big or small you’d like them to be.
  • Store them in the fridge and share with your friends

      Thanks for your comment! One packet of the Sunwarrior Protein is 21g, so I would say approx 1-2 tbsps of your protein powder. You can play around with this amount too- it’s nice to bump up the protein content for a really filling snack but if this makes the mixture dry I would add extra date water to balance it out.

      Let me know how they turn out 🙂
