No Bake Chocolate Protein Date Cookies

These are a great pre-workout snack for energy, or post-workout for a little bit of protein!



What you will need:
  • 1/2 cup of dried, pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 pinch of Pink Himalayan salt
Start by placing the oats and protein powder into a food processor. Pulse until flour-like. 
Next add in the dates, peanut butter, and walnuts. Pulse again until everything is incorporated together. The mixture will be extremely thick. At this point go ahead and add the honey and almond milk.
Once everything has been processed together go ahead and transfer your dough into a bowl and sprinkle the pinch of salt into it. Knead your dough to make sure the salt is dispersed evenly. 
Now you are going to use your dough to make 8 balls. After you have rolled out the balls you are going to flatten them into a cookie shape. Place your cookies in the fridge for 15 minutes and then they are ready to enjoy!
