SERVINGS

12 bites

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3

    cup raisins

  • 1/2

    cup whole dates, pitted

  • 3/4

    cup almonds, unsalted

  • 2

    scoops chocolate Tone It Up Protein

  • 3

    Tbsp almond butter

  • 1

    Tbsp honey

  • 1

    pinch sea salt

DIRECTIONS

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.
