scant 2 cups cooked chickpeas or 1 can chickpeas, drained and RINSED well (no-salt added)
1/4 cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, walnut, etc.)
1/4 cup maple syrup (or raw honey)
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp maca powder
2 tbsp whole flaxseeds, freshly ground
For toppings (optional):
Goji berries, hemp seeds, flaxseeds (ground), nuts, cacao nibs, toasted oats, chocolate chips, raisins, cinnamon, various dried fruit, coconut flakes, possibilities are endless!
Combine all ingredients except toppings in a food processor or crappy magic bullet and blend until all is combined. I blended the flax prior to everything else, just to make sure they were ground. If you’d like to add in some chocolate chips (which I do recommend), then mix in with the batter now. I omitted the chips because I knew I was going to eat the whole batch… >.<
Roll into balls and add toppings if desired.
Place on a tray or in a container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes until they set. Devour.
