This recipe started as a fail and ended up as a favorite. You will love these high protein chocolate energy bites. No refined sugar, paleo and just oh so good!
1 cup dates, pitted
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup egg white powder
3 Tablespoons water
1-2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup shredded (unsweetened) coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips (vegan or Paleo brands depending on your eating style)
Process the dates, cashews, almonds and egg white powder in a food processor. Add water one tablespoon at a time to make processing easier. Towards the end of the process time add the chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of salt to the mixture.
With wet hands (the dough is kind of sticky), roll into small balls (small cookie scoop size or about 1 tablespoon). Roll in shredded coconut.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before eating.
