  • ½ cup pecans
  • 9 Medjool Dates, pitted
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ¼ cup vanilla protein powder
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • Glaze
  • ¼ cup coconut butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Place chia seeds in a small bowl. Add almond milk. Let sit 20 minutes.
  • Add pecans, dates, oats, protein powder, vanilla powder or extract, and sea salt into your food processor and pulse until mixture is completely chopped. Pulse in chia almond milk mixture. Blend for a few more seconds, until a dough forms. Use a scoop or roll into small balls using your hands. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
