These taste just as scrumptious as the look.
Whip up a batch of these babies and keep them near your desk, and you’ll never have to go on a 3 pm cookie run again.
In addition to healthfully satisfying your sweet tooth, they make a great pre-or post-workout snack, for those days when you’re rushing from the office to the gym and need something light but that will squash the hunger pangs.
Just a square or two is hearty enough to leave you feeling satisfied. With 3 simple ingredients and a prep time under 5 minutes, there’s no reason not to keep a batch of these on hand.
Almond Goji Berry Protein Bites
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup dates pitted
- 1/4 cup goji berries
- In a blender, blend almonds into a flour. (A bullet blender works well here).
- Add the dates and goji berries, and then blend again until a smooth paste forms. Press it into a small rectangular tupperware, and then flip upside down onto plate. (Use a butter knife to release the sides if you need to, but it should pop pretty easily out of the tupperware.
- Finally, cut the almond date block into squares or bars. Enjoy!
