INGREDIENTS

1 cup raw Almonds

1 cup (packed) Medjool Dates, pitted (about 16 large)

3 Tbsp Navitas Organics Protein & Greens Essential Blend

¼ cup unsweetened shredded Coconut, plus extra for rolling

2 Tbsp Maple Syrup

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

¾ tsp Peppermint Extract

1-2 pinches Sea Salt

¼ cup Navitas Organics Cacao Nibs

¼ cup Chocolate Chips (stevia-sweetened or regular variety)

DIRECTIONS

In a food processor, combine the almonds and dates. Process until ground down into a crumbly dough. Add the Protein & Greens Essential Blend, ¼ cup coconut, maple syrup, vanilla extract, mint extract, and one or two large pinches of salt. Process until well combined. Stop the machine and test the consistency – the dough should stick together easily when pressed between two fingers.*

Add the Cacao Nibs and chocolate chips. Process briefly to partially break down the chocolate, while leaving large chunks and nibs throughout, for texture.
One tablespoon at time, shape into balls, and roll in extra shredded coconut. Stored at room temperature, Mint Chip Protein Balls will keep for several weeks.
*Depending on the moisture levels of the dates, you may need to make an adjustment to create the proper texture: If the dough is too dry and doesn't stick, add a little water, a spoonful at a time and process again. If the dough is too wet, add a little extra Essential Blend, a spoonful at a time, and process to combine.
