The following recipe can be a healthy, nutrient dense breakfast, snack, or dessert that will provide you with sustainable energy. It’s an excellent source of protein and essential fatty acids too.
- 1.5 cups cashews
- 2/3 cups medjool (pitted) dates
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup goji berries
- 1 tsp maca powder
- pinch of himilayan sea salt
- optional: 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
Grind cashews into powder first. Add everything else and process into a dough in your food processor. Roll into small balls. Place on plate or tray on parchment paper and make sure to space them out well. Wet a fork and then press down in the middle of the cashew cookie ball to flatten it and leave fork lines on top. Re-wet fork for every cookie so dough does not keep sticking to fork. Store in freezer. When ready to eat, enjoy frozen or wait a few minutes for it to de-thaw. Superfood high protein yumminess!
