  • 2 cups pitted medjool dates*
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup Tropeaka Salted Caramel Protein Powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2-6 tbsp water
  1. Add pitted dates, almond meal, protein powder, coconut, cacao nibs and chia seeds to a food processor.

  2. Blitz until all the ingredients are consistent in texture. The mixture should look like the almond meal in consistency.

  3. Add in coconut oil & peanut butter. Pulse and occasionally scrape down sides until combined.

  4. Add one tablespoon of water at a time and then pulse the mixture until combined. Ideally, you want a sticky mixture that easily forms a ball. You'll probably need more water rather than less. But go slowly and check the mixture before adding more. 

  5. Scoop out desired size, shape into balls and place the finished protein balls in the fridge for a few hours to set. If it's easier, you could use a cookie scoop.

  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*if your dates look too dry/hard, be sure to soak them in hot water for 10 minutes before using
