Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Cake Bites
Kids need a quick boost of whole food protein? Two of these fudgy energy balls provide 8 grams of plant protein with NO powders in sight.
Servings: 8 2 balls
- 9 each dates, Medjool
- 1/3 cup oats, dry
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 3 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
- 1/2 cup peanut butter, all-natural
- 4 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place the oats and sunflower seeds in a food processor, and blend until you get a fine flour-like consistency (it may take a few minutes.) Transfer to a mixing bowl.
Place the dates (without pits) into the food processor and blend until a sticky paste forms. Add the sticky ball of date paste to the mixing bowl.
Add cocoa powder, peanut butter, vanilla, and mini chocolate chips to the mixing bowl. Use your hands to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.
Gently shape the dough into balls, using about two tablespoons of dough per ball.
Enjoy. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.
