Raw, Vegan, Gluten and Soy-free Chai Bombs from Chef Gwen Marzano

Posted by: Ursula Zamora on Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Chef and Garden of Life Educator Gwen Marzano makes these amazing little nuggets of deliciousness while out doing demonstrations for our retailers. You will definitely want to take the time to make some of these treats when you get a chance!

Chef Gwen's Chai Bombs

3 cups raw, unsalted pecans

10 Medjool dates (remove pit and soak dates in a bowl of water for 10 minutes to soften)

1 scoop Garden of Life Vanilla Chai RAW Protein

1 Tbsp. Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

½ cup dried cranberries

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. orange zest

¼ tsp. nutmeg

Makes: 26- 30 cookie balls

Preparation: Place pecans in food processor using the “S” blade and process until they are finely chopped. Remove dates from water but do not pat dry (you need them to be moist in order to get the batter to stick). Add all ingredients into the food processor on top of the pecans and pulse until everything is well mixed and begins to stick. Roll about 1 tablespoon of batter into a ball to form a cookie. Refrigerate for up to one week.
