[Makes 4]

These are great for post-workout & eating on the go.
This is our healthy version of a “Think Thin ” bar – without the junk.

  • 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut butter or coconut oil
  • 5 drops vanilla stevia
  • 1/2 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Dust with shredded coconut or raw cacao

Put all ingredients in a mini chopper/processor and pulse a few times to incorporate.
Give the dough a stir and start to roll the mixture into 1 tablespoon-sized balls with your hands.

If the dough is too crumbly, add a few drops of water. Then add the shredded coconut & dust with raw cacao (optional). Eat right away or store in an airtight container at room temperature.

# 3 RAW COOKIE DOUGH BABY WITH GRAINS (QUINOA)

  • 2/3 cup raw almonds
  • 2/3 cup raw walnuts or pumpkin seeds
  • 2/3 cup dry, uncooked quinoa (grind quinoa in blender or Bob’s Red Mill Brand)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips

 

In a food processor, process the almonds, walnuts, oats, cinnamon, and salt to a fine meal. Add the agave nectar and vanilla and process to combine.

Place the pan in the freezer for about an hour to firm up. Store balls in a tightly covered container in the freezer.
