Coconut Carob Energy Gel (w/ protein)

from Thrive by Brendan Brazier

2 dates

1/4 c agave nectar

1 tbsp carob powder (or cacao nibs)

1 tbsp hemp protein

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest

Blend all ingredients together in food processor. Makes enough for 4 gels.

Each one containing: 1.2g protein, 3.8g fat, 24.6g carb, 137.6 calories.

Gels I've been using were 5g protein, no fat, 20g carbs, and 100 calories. So the homemade ones don't have a 1:4 protein to carb ratio but it's whole real food with no additives and no animal protein.
