Are you ready for the holidays? Here's one more recipe - quick and delicious! - that will keep you and your fellow party-goers satiated thanks to a healthy dose of protein, a bit of natural sugar, and a chocolate-y kick!
JCJ Approved Holiday Protein Bites
2 + 3/4 C pitted dates
1/2 C water
1/2 C natural nut butter
1 C vanilla whey protein
1/4 C cocoa powder
1/4 C hemp seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
lukewarm water for rolling
Blend dates and water in a food processor. Next, add the nut butter. Add the protein powder slowly. Last, add the cocoa powder, hemp seeds, and cinnamon and mix all thoroughly.
Set aside a bowl of lukewarm water to clean hands while working with dough. Form into golf ball-sized bites. Roll in festive toppings if desired (we like red and green sprinkles!).
Freeze on a baking sheet for minimum 3 hours before packaging together. Bites can be stored in freezer until ready to eat!
Wishing you Happy Holidays and a healthy New Year!
