Ingredients

  • 2 ¾ cups Dates seeds removed
  • ½ cup Water
  • 1/3 cup Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Herbalife Vanilla Drink Mix Protein
  • ¼ cup Unsweetened Cocoa unprocessed Cocoa
  • ¼ cup Ground Flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ cup Ground Walnuts or Almonds

Instructions

  • In food processor or blender, blend dates and water. Add nut butter and blend until smooth. Add protein powder in ½ cup increments and process. Add cocoa, flaxseeds and cinnamon and process until well blended.
  • With clean hands, gather some dough about the size of a golf ball and roll it between the palms of your hands. Keep a bowl of protein powder nearby. If dough becomes sticky, roll in protein powder to keep from sticking to your hands.
  • Roll each ball in the ground nuts. Set each ball on a baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 2-4 hours. Serve or freeze for later.

Notes

We also like these in bar form. To do this cover ½ of baking sheet with waxed paper with other ½ is hanging over end. Place dough on waxed paper and fold remaining paper on top of dough. Press down into bars. Freeze for at least ½ hour and cut into squares. Store in freezer.
I prefer to cook with Herbalife Drink Mix Protein. Link above
