1 1/2 cups of raw mixed nuts and seeds
5 soaked medjool dates
1/2 cup unsweetened nut butter of your choice
1 tsp maple extract (vanilla is fine too.)
1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
1 TBS cinnamon
2-3 TBS raw cacao powder (depending on taste)
1/4 cup coconut oil
6 drops of organic liquid Stevia.
3 scoops of protein powder (optional)
Pulverize or finely chop the the nuts and dates (I use a Vitamix but you can use any type of blender/mixer or by hand!)
Melt the coconut oil add liquid Stevia to the oil.
Mix nuts and dates mixture, nut butter, cinnamon and coconut oil with Stevia then fold in your protein powder. Mix everything together.
Flatten mixture onto an 8×8 inch pan lined with parchment paper. Cut into small squares (or roll into balls), cover with parchment and refrigerate for two hours.
Store in the fridge to keep hard.
This is a perfect snack for after a workout or if you need a treat in between meals. Kids will love them too!
