Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites


Ingredients:

Makes 18 bites

280g dates
4-6 tablespoons milk (I used light coconut)
1/4 cup (50g) dark chocolate chips or chopped cacao
4 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Blend the dates and peanut butter in a food processor or blender until finely chopped.


2. Add in protein powder, vanilla extract and milk (add a tablespoon at a time so you don’t make the mixture too wet). 

3. Remove from the food processor, place in a bowl and fold in the chocolate chips.

4. Scoop the mixture up with a spoon and roll into 18 even sized balls with your hands. Have a bowl of cold water at the side to dampen your hands so the mixture doesn't stick.

5. Let them set in the fridge, they can be stored in either the fridge or the freezer.

  1. Hi melfy! Love the idea of these protein balls but I'm on a low-carb diet. Do you have any suggested subs for the dates? Thanks so much :-)
