This recipe was found over at our friend Taylor’s website, FoodFaithFitness.

Serves 10 Energy Bites
Equipment Food Processor
Prep time 20m

 

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Dates, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Ujido Matcha Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Chocolate protein powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Coconut oil, melted and divided
  • 2 Ounces Semi-sweet chocolate

 

Instructions

  1. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Add the roughly chopped dates into a small food processor and process until the dates break down and begin to form a ball.

  3. Using a spatula, break the date ball up a little bit and add the Ujido Matcha Powder, chocolate protein powder and 1 tsp of the melted coconut oil into the food processor.

  4. Process until all mixed up, and a ball forms.

  5. 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.

  6. In a small, microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave using 20 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until smooth and melted. Stir in the remaining 1/2 tsp of melted coconut oil.

  7. 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.

  8. Transfer the chocolate covered bites to the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens and DEVOUR.
