As a vegan, I love being asked where I get my protein every 10 minutes. TOTALLY KIDDING. Non-Vegans, stop asking about protein. We are fine. Thanks.
Nevertheless, this recipe is full of protein. They are great for a pre-workout snack. Or just a filling afternoon snack. Plus, it only takes 3 ingredients to make!
- Prep time: 10 Minutes
- Makes 25 quarter size balls
- 1 c. chopped dried dates
- 1/2 c. peanut butter (you can make your own! recipe here)
- 1/2 c. chopped almonds
These are my favorite dates to use. For this recipe, you have to chop the dates. Using a food processor makes the dates into a caramel. Medjool dates do have pits that have to be removed.
- Remove pits, and chop.
- Add peanut butter
- Combine. I used a wooden spoon at first, but it was way easier to mix by hand.
- Roll in Chopped almonds
You can use a food processor to chop the almonds. I rough chopped them. The variation of sizes helped to coat the date and peanut butter mixture to make it less sticky.
Plus, when I drop any of the almonds, I have Charlie to help me clean them up. He is a great helper in the kitchen.
Keep them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. But they probably won’t last that long.
