By Joy Houston
- 1/2 cup almonds or other nuts
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup cashew butter
- 4 ounces protein powder
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 cup cacao nibs
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 vanilla bean
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pulse nuts in food processor until they form a crumbly flour-like texture.
Add oatmeal to food processor and pulse until well combined.
Add nut butter, protein powder, chia seeds, cacao nibs, and cinnamon. Slice open vanilla bean and scrape the black paste from the pod and add to food processor. Pulse a few times until the mixture begins to fall in on itself. The texture should be sticky enough to press into a ball.
Press mixture into a glass baking dish or silicon mold. Refrigerate for optimal consistency. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
