Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup Pure Edge Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1-2tbsp Phyto-Greens (Or any other greens blend)
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup organic cranberries (or rasins)
  • 3/4 cup medjool dates, pitted (around 7-8 dates) soaked in hot water to soften
  • 3 tbsp rice malt syrup or maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of fine salt
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder

Method:

  1. Place the almond meal, cacao, protein powder, phyto-greens, almonds and cranberries in a food processor or blender. Pulse until the almonds break down and the mixture is combined.
  2. Next, add the rice malt syrup, dates and coconut oil and blend until the mixture forms thick crumbs (don’t overdo it too much as you’ll lose the crunchy almond pieces).
  3. Then, shape the mixture into balls by rolling with the palms of your hands. (You can add a bit of water to your hands to make it easier for rolling). Roll your balls into the extra cacao for coating.
  4. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.
