We all need a little treat now and then...sometimes its more now than it is then. I am a chocolate girl and need a little yummy treat every day, but I don't want the processed sugar, dairy, or flour to sabotage my results. These little bite sized morsels are packed with a lot of nutrients and a lot of chocolaty flavor, plus they are gluten free, grain free and Vegan! They are also incredibly easy to make!
3/4 cup Organic Pitted Dates (preferably raw)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/16 tsp Salt
2 Tb Cocoa Powder (preferably raw)
2 Tb Coconut Flour or Coconut Flakes
1/2 Cup Organic Raw Cashews or other nuts
2 Tb Vegan Chocolate Chips (optional)
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until well combined. Once combined I put the mixture into a Ziploc bag to avoid a mess and mash it together. Form into balls as shown in the picture or form into bars for a healthier protein bar.
