Chocolate Pecan Pie Energy Bites
These high-protein energy bites, which include chocolate collagen powder and dates, are delicious and convenient for busy days.
- ¾ cup pecans
- 1 tbs. pure maple syrup
- 1 cup pitted dates
- ¼ cup chocolate collagen powder of choice
- ⅛ tsp. sea salt
- ¼ cup cocoa powder, divided
Place the pecans in a food processor or blender and grind to a fine mince. Add the maple syrup, dates, collagen powder, salt, and half of the cocoa powder, and process until the mixture forms a dough.
Place the remaining cocoa powder in a medium bowl. Scoop level tablespoonfuls of the mixture, drop into the cocoa powder, and roll into balls as you coat. Place on a plate or sheet pan.
Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes, then transfer the bites to airtight containers. Keep refrigerated for up to one month. Pack individual portions in smaller containers to take on the go.
