IMG_1408-1

Ingredients

4 Medjool Dates, soaked
2-3 Dried Figs, soaked
1 oz Dehydrated Apples (not apple chips)
2T Whole Flax Seeds
3 scoops Pea/Rice Protein, flavored
3T Homemade Almond Butter
2T Honey (or coconut nectar for strict vegans)
Date water as needed

Directions

Soak 4 medjool dates and 2-3 dried figs until they are soft, reseve the water for later. In a food processor, grind the dates and figs and add 2T flax seeds, 3 scoops pea/rice protein of choice, 3T almond butter, 2T honey and date water as needed. Let it process for a few minutes and add about 1 oz. dehydrated apples, don’t use apple chips though. Once the mixture is soft and fudge-y it will be easy to roll into balls. Mine made about 17 but you could make 18. I stored mine in the freezer so they keep longer but they don’t need to set at all so you could store them in the fridge if you’re gonna eat them all soon šŸ™‚

Makes: 17 balls

Zucchini Oatein Freezer Cups

20140720-200640-72400085.jpg

Ingredients

2C Shredded Zucchini
1T Flax Oil
3/4C Old Fashioned Oats
3 Scoops Cellucor COR-fetti Whey
1/4C Water

Directions

In a VitaMix, grind 3/4C old fashioned oats into a flour. In a food processor, add 2C shredded zucchini, 1T flax oil, and 1/4C (or less) water until smooth. Add the oat flour and 3 scoops of whey and process until combined. Pour into 8 silicone cupcake molds. Let sit for about an hour so the oats can soften before you freeze them. Store in the freezer. These are a perfect summer treat to cool down, and they are only 100 calories per cup (and 10g protein!). You may want to make 16 cups instead of 8 because they are really thick and a little hard to bite into.
