Need that chocolate fix? Looking for a nutritious pre or post-workout snack? Look no further than these Dark Chocolate Cherry Protein Bites! Made with protein powder, dried fruit, nut butter, and dates these bites will help keep you full and are naturally sweetened.
When working with dates, make sure you soak them in warm water beforehand. I’ve made the mistake of not soaking them and have been left with a chunk of dates spinning in the food processor, but not breaking down. You’re looking for a paste-like consistency and the warm water helps you achieve this.
I used vegan protein powder that contains no artificial additives, but use whichever kind of protein works best for you. You also have the option to replace the dark chocolate chips with raw cacao nibs or powder to boost antioxidants and lower sugar.
