Raw Chickpea Protein Bites

I totally made this recipe up on the fly and I’m impressed with myself. 

I am always on the hunt for healthy snacks that I can leave in the fridge for my teens to grab and for myself after teaching a fitness class.

These are a perfect post-workout snack, lunchbox addition, after school snack, stuck-in-traffic snack. Chick Pea Bites

In a food processor, add 

  • 1 cup drained, canned chickpeas
  • 3 dried pitted dates
  • 1 Tblsp honey
  • 1 Tblsp Tahini, Almond or Peanut butter
  • 2 Tblsp ground flax

Chop for about 5 seconds. Then add

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats and pulse until blended

Transfer to a large bowl and stir in

  • 2 Tblsp chia seeds

Roll into 9 bite sized balls and keep refrigerated. Option is to roll the balls in some in coconut flakes before refrigerating.
