Chocolate Chip Protein Power Bites


Protein Bitesby Amy Wood* (The Canadian Fair Trade Network)

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 large Medjool dates, pitted
  • 4 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp vegan protein (I use pumpkin seed protein)
  • 1 Tbsp organic, Fairtrade cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp organic, Fairtrade cocoa nibs

Preparation

  1. Add everything but the cocoa nibs into a food processor and pulse until well combined.
  2. Add cocoa nibs and pulse until incorporated but not fully blended.
  3. Take approximately 1 Tbsp of the mixture and press into a round-ish ball. Then use palms to roll into a compact ball.
  4. Place in fridge in an air-tight container.

Makes between 6 and 8 power balls.

Pro tip: double or even triple the recipe and freeze what you won’t eat in the coming week.
