1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup honey
4 medjool dates pitted

Dump blended contents onto counter and shape into balls. They can be enjoyed as a protein ball or flatten between your palms for easy on the go protein cookies.
*I used an organic seed butter made up of roasted sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and flax. Any nut or seed butter will work and give the cookies a unique taste. Experiment to find your favourite.
