¾ cup cashews
½ cup oats
Pinch of himalayan salt
1 cup pitted dates (about 10)
¼ cup cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips
Add the cashews, oats, himalayan salt and protein powder to a food processor and process until no chunks remain.
Add the dates and blend until a dough forms. You may want to soak your dates prior to blending depending on the strength of your food processor.
Continue to blend until the dough becomes a ball then transfer into a bowl.
Mix in the cacao nibs or chocolate chips and then roll into balls.
Store in either the fridge or freezer.
