    1. These are delicious! I made these and a couple other treats the other day.. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Protein Bites and the Chocolate Almond Fudge Bites are definitely my favorite! Highly reccommend! I made these as a healthier version of cake pops – half dipped in dark chocolate with some sprinkles and voila! Big hit with everyone.

    2. Hii! I would like to do this recipe but im from dominican republic and i dont know what is medjool dates!? And if i can substitute that with anthing else, here is really hard to find ingredients if they are complicated! Thanks! And i love your page! It has helped me a lot

    3. Made a batch of these cookie dough bites tonight. Yum!

      Just like with other homemade Lara Bar recipes (since these are essentially Lara Bar Bites), I find that you really have to let them process in the food processor for a good 5 minutes. It is ready when it forms a “dough” and sticks together in one big shiny ball! Since these have the added protein powder (which is an added dry element), I did have to process a bit longer than regular Lara Bars to get it to form a dough.

      I used 1 scoop of protein powder and that was fine for my tastes. Did not drizzle additional chocolate because I didn’t want to dirty a saucepan or bowl, but if I made these for company I would go the extra step for the drizzle because it really takes them up a notch in presentation.

    4. Just made a batch of these! They are fantastic! I only had deglet dates, which are a lot dryer, so I added about 2TBS melted coconut oil. I also used the vanilla protein powder! Will be a popular snack in the house.

    5. I’m confused…how is this Paleo with the Enjoy Life’s mini chocolate chips? The first ingredient on the chips is ‘cane sugar’?
