4 Simple Ingredients
- Dates- Dates work so well for so many things. They add natural sweetness and are great for binding things together.
- Dried Apricots- Go with organic apricots if possible. You may notice they’re not quite as “pretty” as non-organic dried apricots. Rather than being orange, they’re much darker...basically brown. This is because they are not treated with sulfur dioxide like conventional dried apricots.
- Tigernut Four- If you don't have tigernut flour or prefer not to use it, coconut flour will likely work as well though you may need slightly less of it.
- Collagen Powder- Vital Proteins is a great brand. Collagen is such an easy way to sneak protein into foods because it has no flavor and such a fine texture that it just blends right in.
These will keep fresh in the fridge for up 3-4 days in a tightly sealed container and about 3 months (possibly more) in the freezer.

Apricot Protein Bites
- Combine the dates and apricots in a food processor and blend until the mixture turns into small crumbles.
- Add half of the tigernut flour along with the collagen and mix in with a spoon or spatula. Blend. Add the second half of the tigernut flour and do the same thing. *This helps to prevent the fine particles of the tigernut flour and collagen from flying up and getting through the crevices of the food processor lid.
- Pour the mixture on to a sheet of parchment paper and press it together to form a cohesive ball of dough.
- Form the ball into a square about 1/2" thick and 4" x 4" wide. Make 3 cuts horizontally and vertically to form 16 small bites. Enjoy!
