A protein packed way to start your day or keep your energy for the afternoon. Pack them for an on-the-go snack!
14 dates, pits removed
1/4 cup Toasted Coconut butter
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp local honey optional
In a food processor, pulse the dates with the coconut butter and almonds until the mixture is well combined and in small chunks.
Add the protein powder and the salt. Pulse again. The almonds will release their natural oils as they are processed and the mixture will come together like a sticky ball.
Add a little honey or stevia to taste and pulse to combine. Firmly press the mixture into a loaf pan or use a piece of parchment paper shape into a rectangle. Let it firm in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Unmold and cut into 1 inch squares with a sharp knife.
