This recipe is a go-to for Mary Anne, who is the head coach of Big River’s START 5k program!
1 cup (225 g) packed, soft pitted dates
1 cup (100 g) raw cashews
3/4 cup (60 g) unsweetened fine coconut
1 T coconut oil (optional)
1/8 tsp sea salt (optional)
1. Blend all ingredients until it forms a dough. ( I use my food processor)
2. Roll into balls and store in the fridge.
Makes 15 balls
I like adding coconut oil because I think it smooths the dough out plus helps firm it up in the fridge.
I love popping one of these as a pre-workout snack, especially for an early morning workout when I’m not really ready to eat. Quick carb.
