You only need 3 ingredients to make these easy & healthy date energy balls! An easy no-bake, healthy snack for kids and adults alike. Perfect for busy, on-the-go school snacks or make a batch for a post workout snack! Tastes just like cashew cookie Lara Bars and done in 15 minutes!
Add pitted raw dates to a food processor and process in 10 second increments until dates roll up into a large ball of date paste. Very carefully remove the date paste ball watching your hands around the blade.
Break up date paste into chunks and add it and cashews back into food processor along with collagen protein. Process until smooth (do not over-process) and date paste mixture starts to hold together and rolls into a large ball.
Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out date balls. Allow date balls to firm up in the fridge for 30 minutes.
If you want even more protein, use your favorite protein powder that has more protein per serving.
Store these in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week or on the countertop for a few days.
