Vegan chocolate Protein Balls

I wanted something quick and satisfying to eat after a run. I found this easy snack that takes 5 minutes to make once you have your food processor and all the ingredients ready.  This probably could be made in a regular blender also but I haven't tried it.

Ingredients:

Oats - 1 cup
Cashewnuts (raw or roasted) - 1 cup
Chocolate powder (unsweetened) - 1/3 cup
Protein powder - 2 scoops
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Pitted dates - 8
Ripe banana - 1 or 2



Method:

In a food processor combine 1 cup oats, 1 cup cashews, 1/3 cup cocao powder, 2 scoops protein powder 1/4 tsp salt and 8 pitted dates.  Blend for 2 minutes or so.  Add 1 ripe banana and blend again until a dough is formed. This takes a few seconds.  If its not forming a dough add another banana.  Remove the dough and make even sized balls. This makes 25 balls. You can store this in the fridge for upto a week.
