Prep Time:10 minutes
Total Time:10 minutes
Yield:12 bites 1x
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup dried prunes
3 tablespoons peanut butter or nut-free butter
1 tablespoon honey, (optional)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 scoop your favorite chocolate protein powder, (28g scoop)
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, (optional)
In the bowl of a food processor, blend oats into a flour-like texture. Add prunes, peanut butter, honey, cocoa powder, and protein powder, and process mixture until combined, making sure to stop once or twice to scrape the sides. If the mixture is too crumbly, add a tablespoon or two of water. Once the mixture has a sand-like consistency and it adheres to itself when pinching, it’s ready to roll it out.
Remove the blades from the food processor and fold in mini chocolate chips.
Begin rolling out the dough by hand, about a tablespoon at a time and place bites into a container. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until set.
