Author's Notes

Makes 26 football snacks.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Cover dates in a bowl with water and soak for 10-15 minutes, drain water.

If you don’t have pea protein, you can substitute it with peanut butter powder, a flavorless collagen powder, or chocolate protein powder.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Cover a baking sheet with wax paper and set it aside.
Step 2
Thoroughly rinse the Quinoa (1/4 cup) to remove the saponin (bitter taste) by adding uncooked quinoa to the bowl, fill with clean water and soak for a few minutes. Use a wire whisk to move the quinoa around in the water, then strain the quinoa in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse with fresh water.
Step 3
Add wet quinoa to saute pan and cook on the stovetop over medium-low heat (no oil), using a whisk or spatula to stir in pan.
Step 4
Once the quinoa is hot, the water will absorb and the quinoa will begin to pop. After about 5-6 minutes, the quinoa will begin to brown and have a nutty flavor when it's ready. Stir continuously to ensure it does not burn. Once quinoa is toasted, remove from heat and set aside.
Step 5
Meanwhile, add Medjool Dates (1 cup) , Raw Almonds (3/4 cup) , and Nut Butter (3/4 cup) to a bowl of a food processor. Blend on high for 15-20 seconds.
Step 6
Scrape down sides and add Pea Protein Powder (1/4 cup) , Cacao Powder (1/3 cup) , toasted quinoa, and Vanilla Extract (1 tsp) continue to blend another 15-20 seconds, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. The mixture should be a fine crumbly consistency.
Step 7
Test mixture to see if it will hold together well by pinching a small section between fingers to see if takes shapes and holds. If it feels too dry and does not stick together, add Water (1 Tbsp) and continue to blend. Test again.
Step 8
Once the mixture is ready for shaping, scoop out small handfuls, gently roll into a ball, then shape into football.
Step 9
Top with small Cacao Nibs (to taste) as the laces if desired. Enjoy!
