  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
    In a food processor, chop dates until they turn into puree/paste. 

    Helpful Tips on baking with dates:  From what i've noticed some dates range in texture. And some are not always chewy and pull-apart soft. When I purchase dates and they're a little harder, I like to soak them in very warm water for 5 minutes to soften them. Otherwise your blender will not process them well.

  2. In electric mixer: mix date paste, peanut butter, vanilla, protein powder, almond flour, coconut oil, and vanilla. Mix in baking soda and eggs. Add chocolate chips in last. 

  3. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Use a one inch cookie scoop (or measure with regular spoon) and line sheet with dough balls. 

  4. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Store in a sealed container in refrigerator (can freeze too). ENJOY!
