Peanut Butter Energy Bits

Eating clean has become a very important part of our lives, although you wouldn't have guessed during my birthday this past weekend. We ended up eating at barbaritos and crap trap at the end of the night I got sick from either over eating or eating things that my body is no longer used to, I'm not sure which. 

This recipe is super easy to do and everyone will be begging you for this recipe. 

Makes about 1 dozen cookie bits
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup dark chocolate
1 tsp homemade vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup pitted dates
1/2-3/4 cup natural peanut butter or any other nut butter
1/8 tsp salt

Put the almonds in the food processor until it resembles a crumble. Add all the other ingredients and pulse until it's a sticky dough. Give it a pinch and if it sticks together but not your fingers it's ready.  Roll the dough into a 1 inch ball and press a fork down into it to create a disk like cookie. Place it on a splat sheet and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. You'll want to place in an airtight container to store.

I'm sure you could freeze them and take them out as you wanted them.

To make homemade vanilla just add vodka and vanilla beans, give it a shake every so often and let sit for several months.
