(No Bake) Protein Cookies

I’m originally from Maine, and stand behind good, local products. Stronger Faster Healthier has a great whey protein product that is designed, formulated and produced in Warren, Maine.  They are GMO free and derive their whey from free range and grass fed cows. On their website, SFH states: “Our mission has been consistent: The combination of a clean diet, exercise, along with clean supplementation (high-strength fish oil and high-quality protein) leads to long term health by keeping your inflammation levels down and adding lean muscle.”

Sometimes I want a quick snack, or something I can grab and go and eat later in the car while on the road. Most snacks and grab-and-go foods are loaded with refined sugars, processed oils and extra (unpronounceable) ingredients that I don’t necessarily want to consume. Naturally, I made something that is quick, healthy and contains a good amount of protein for sustained energy throughout my mornings. It requires zero cook time, little clean up and a quick use of a food processor. Plus, you can make these in bulk and freeze them easily!

Ingredients
10 pitted Medjool dates
2 scoops of Chocolate whey protein (I used SFH- Stronger Faster Healthier Grass-fed Whey)
1/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup almonds (you can sub for a different nut if want to!)
2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
If your dates are not pitted, remove the seed before proceeding
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until you reach your desired consistency
(as pictured, I prefer some larger pieces of nuts and dates in my cookies)
If your mixture is quite dry, you can add a tsp of water and continue to blend

Roll bite-size balls of the dough in your hands and flatten into cookies

For best results, place cookies in the refrigerator for approximately 1 hour before consuming

I keep mine in a glass pyrex dish in the fridge!
