Power Bites

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 4 scoops protein powder
  • unsweetened, dried shredded coconut (to cover outside of bites)

Place dates, nut butter, and protein powder to the bowl of food processor. Pulse ingredients gently until a paste-like batter is formed (this may take 1-5 minutes). Add chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. Gently pulse mixture to incorporate, but do not blend completely (pieces of the seeds should still be visible and will provide texture to the finished product). Remove mixture from mixing bowl, and using your hand, gently shape mixture into 1oz size balls. Place coconut on a plate or flat surface, and gently roll the ball in coconut to cover extrior. Package in airtight container.
