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 🙂

Makes: 17 balls
