I like pick-me-ups especially on days when my only rest is in between writing and events.
Here’s a 5-ingredient recipe of a quick, energizing snack for you to try. It only takes about 5 minutes or less to make!
This can also be a good post-run snack especially if you have a sweet tooth like me.
- 1-2 tbsp slivered almonds
- 1-2 tsp cocoa
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, optional
- 2-3 tbsp nut butter of choice (I love almond butter or cashew butter for this)
- 2-4 pcs of pitted dates, soaked to soften
Mix all the ingredients in a food processor and shape into balls or mini bars! You can easily double or triple the recipe to make a large batch and keep in the fridge for future snacking.
You can also add cacao nibs, chia seeds or desiccated coconut.
Trivia: Almonds are a great source of healthy fats and dates are awesome source of calcium and iron, to name a few.
Enjoy! If you’re doing this, lemme know how it goes.
