You will need:
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 cup egg white protein just pure egg whites
- 2 cups dates
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 4-6 tablespoons water
- 1/2 teaspoon large grain salt I use Real Salt
- Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a food processor, add the almonds and cashews and pulse until chopped up.
- Add in the egg white powder, dates, and cacao powder. Process until combined.
- Mix in water a tablespoon at a time and process until mixture blends together like cookie dough. It should be moist enough to stick together, but not too wet where it’s overly sticky. This may take a minute to fully come together, just keep processing until it does.
- Press evenly into prepared pan, sprinkle with large grain salt and refrigerate.
- Cut into 9 squares. Keep refrigerated for best texture. They can be at room temperature, but will soften.
These are high in calories so eating more than one a day is not suggested. 15 grams of protein is a relatively high amount for a protein bar. Eat with a glass of milk for an extra protein boost.
