INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1 scoop Epic Protein Chocolate Maca
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup reserved date water (only use if your dough is too dry)
  • 1 cup sugar free chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
    DIRECTIONS
    1. Soak your pitted dates in hot water for 30 minutes to soften.
    2. Once done soaking, drain and reserve the water.
    3. To a food processor, add almonds, soaked dates, cacao powder, Epic Protein, maple syrup, peppermint extract, salt, and process until you get a sticky consistency.
    4. If the dough is too dry add some of the date water to smooth it out. If the dough is too wet add more cacao powder.
    5. Flatten the dough to create one large sheet about 1/2 an inch thick and cover with plastic wrap for at least 30 minutes.
    6. After cooling, add the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and smooth it out, keeping the layer about 1/2 an inch thick.
    7. Using a circle cookie cutter, cut out the dough into 18 circles and freeze for 15 minutes.
    8. Melt chocolate chips with coconut oil.
    9. Dip the cookies in melted chocolate and freeze until the chocolate is set.
    10. Enjoy or keep stored in freezer in an airtight container!
