Description

A quick, easy, plant protein-packed snack! Gluten-free with a paleo option, and so addicting!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Dates, Roughly Chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 5 Tablespoons (or More) Chocolate Protein Powder Of Choice (I Used Plant-based)
  • 1 Tablespoon Melted Coconut Oil, Divided
  • 5 ounces, weight Dairy Free Chocolate

Preparation

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Add roughly chopped dates into a food processor and process until dates break down and begin to form a ball. Using a spatula, break date ball up a little bit and add matcha green tea powder, chocolate protein powder and 2 teaspoons of the melted coconut oil into the food processor, reserving the rest for later.

Process until all mixed up, and a ball forms. Take the ball out of the food processor and knead it around with your hands if any of the powders did not get well incorporated. Place the ball in the refrigerator while you melt the chocolate.

In a small, microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate and remaining coconut oil in the microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until smooth and melted.

Take the date mixture out of the refrigerator and roll into tablespoon-sized balls. Place one ball into the melted chocolate, using a spoon to drizzle chocolate over the top until it is coated. Use a fork to scoop out the bite and lightly shake and scrape off any excess chocolate on the side of the bowl. Transfer to the prepared cookie sheet (I find that using a toothpick to slide it off the fork works great!) and repeat with remaining bites.

Transfer chocolate-covered bites to the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens and devour.
