Prep Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 10 medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup raw nuts (any combination - I used 1/4 cup cashew & 1/4 cup almonds)
  • 1/2 cup large flake oats
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips (or combination)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 scoop vegan protein powder (eg. Genuine Health, Sun Warrior, Iron Vegan
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor.  Blend until all ingredients are mixed (about 30 to 40 sec) and you can form into a 1 inch ball.  Wet hands if needed.  Freeze for 15 mins.  Can be eaten out of the freezer or from the fridge.  

  2. If preferred, you can also make this recipe without nuts.  I adjusted the dry ingredients by putting in 3/4 cup oats and a full scoop of vegan protein.
