This Thursday, September 19th at 7 PM, I’ll be hosting a FREE cooking class at Beaming Juice and Superfood Bar in Del Mar. This spot is all about raw, vegan and gluten free healthy eating, so I created a couple of new and delicious recipes to match their mission.
First I’ll be preparing these scrumptious No Bake Protein Bites, followed by a Banana Date Protein Shake and a new fall smoothie recipe that I will be premiering tomorrow on the blog! If you would like to try samples of each of these, get discounts on great Beaming products and watch a free cooking demo by me, RSVP to Whitney@WhitneyBond.com by noon on Thursday, September 19th.
- 1 cup pitted dates (chopped)
- 1 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups sprouted buckwheat groats
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup Beaming Superfood Protein Blend with Greens
Place all ingredients in a food processor.
Blend until ingredients are combined and a sticky ball forms.
Press onto wax paper and roll into 1/2 inch thick sheet.
Use a one inch diameter pastry cutter to cut into bite size pieces.
Chill in the fridge for up to one week. Great for breakfast, a mid-day snack or a post workout protein kick!
The sprouted buckwheat grouts keep this recipe gluten free and provide eight essential amino acids, as well as high proportions of manganese and magnesium, while the dates add a natural sweetness and the almonds give a boost of riboflavin and L-carnitine, nutrients that boost brain activity and may also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
♣ Vegetarian Option: This recipe is vegetarian.
