I used about 1 cup of sprouted, dehydrated buckwheat. you also could use glutenfree oatmeal or some crunchy quinoa.
1/4 cup of almond butter,
1/4 cup of virgin coconut oil,
4 scoops of hemp protein powder, or 2 portions, depending on which brand you use
2 tsp. maca powder,
1/2 cup of cashews,
2 Tbsp. of raw cacao powder,
2 Tbsp. sweetener of your choice, to taste
a few drops of stevia with chocolate flavour
pinch of pink salt,
Add all the ingredients to a foodprocessor fitted with the S-blade and let it come to a nice dough. I added 2 Tbsp of water, but it depends on the amount of sweetener you used weather you need more moisture. Let the natural oils of the nuts soften up, this could take a few minutes. Roll the dough into balls and dust with cacao powder.
