cup whole dates, pitted
cup almonds, unsalted
scoops chocolate Tone It Up Protein
Tbsp almond butter
pinch sea salt
STEP 1: Chop dates and place them into a food processor along with raisins. Process until you have a paste-like consistency.
STEP 2: Add fruit mixture to a bowl and process nuts separately (don't add the nut butter quite yet!) You want almonds to be finely chopped.
STEP 3: Add the just pulsed almonds to the bowl with fruit paste along with remaining ingredients. Knead mixture together with clean hands and roll into ½-1" inch snack balls. Roll in crushed almonds, perfect fit, coconut flakes or cacao for added texture. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
