I have a sweet tooth, hate to admit it but I DO! So do my kids! This is a great “snack” when you are craving something sweet. Clean eating sweets, YUM! :) My 9 year old LOVES these as well!!! Unfortunately I feel horrible and cannot remember where exactly I got the recipe (it now resides in my recipe box. So I am sorry if I am not giving credit where credit is due. I found it on Pinterest awhile back.
1 cup walnuts (or any other nut)
1 & 1/3 cup pitted dates
1 tsp vanilla
3 – 4 T cocoa powder
1/8 tsp himalayan salt
Optional chocolate chips (use dark chocolate if you do)
Chop the nuts, cocoa, and salt finely but with still some chunks in it
Blend the pitted dates and vanilla.
With your hands mix the 2 bowls together
Next time I will try to add some protein powder and I will try to update and let you all know how it turns out! :) I would love to hear back from you all to see if you and/or your kids liked these.
