Chocolate Maca Brownie Bites (no bake)
Makes an 8×8 pan, 16 brownies
½ c chocolate protein powder, cacao powder, or combination of (used 50/50 Vega Energizing Smoothie Choc-A-Lot and cocao powder)
1/2- 1 Vega Chocolate Maca Bar, chopped (used a whole bar)
1c pitted Medjool dates
1c raw almonds
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla or vanilla bean (optional)
Place almonds in a food processor and grind until you reach a course flour texture. Add dates, protein and or cacao powder, and salt, processing until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed.

Store remaining bites in the refrigerator if not eating right away. I like these best at room temp.
