Kids Chews Chocolate

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

The "kid friendly" version of my Somewhat Sophisticated Chocolate Chews. Same basic ideas, just a few tweaks. If peanut allergies are a problem, substitute cashews or hazelnuts.

Ingredients

    1 cup whole almonds
    ¼ cup whole peanuts
    ¼ cup cocoa powder
    ½ tsp sea salt
    1 tbsp vanilla
    ¼ cup honey
    1/3 cup rolled oats

Directions

In a food processor, finely chop (but do not grind) almonds and peanuts.
Pulse in cocoa and salt, then pour in honey and vanilla and pulse in.
Add oats and run until a doughy mix forms.
With your hands, make small balls or shapes out of the “dough” and place on parchment-paper lined trays.
Chill a few hours (best if overnight) before enjoying.

Variation:
To add extra protein to the mixture, add 2 tbsp of whey isolate protein powder or (for dairy-free) soy protein isolate to the cocoa mixture.
