Everything I read lately is about these Medjool Israeli dates! I didn’t put much thought into going out of my way to find these dates but I just happened to walk into Costco and there they were. I couldn’t help it! I checked out all those recipes again, did the typical adjusting and ended up with this as my finished recipe!
I had a hard time finding raw cacao powder so I bought cacao nibs at bulk barn and puréed them in the magic bullet.
I feel like these won’t last long in my fridge!
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup almonds
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (Approximately 11 medium)
4 tbsp. cashew butter
2 tbsp. raw cacao powder
1 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tsp. maca powder
1/4 cup protein powder *optional*
Place coconut and almonds in food processor and pulse until well blended, about a minute. Add dates in one at a time, and then add the rest of the ingredients. Once all well combine use a spoon to make 1″ bites.
Place in the refrigerator on a cookie sheet for minimum 30 minutes – 2 hours and then place in an airtight container and enjoy all week long!
