Simple, portable, perfect ratio of carbs for endurance running, these delicious bites have lots of potassium, an electrolyte that needs to be replaced after long runs. Blackstrap molasses adds iron and calcium, two more important minerals for runners. They are the perfect trail food, pre-workout bite, and post-run snack .

Instructions
  1. If you already have almond and/or cashew meal (Trader Joe's sells them), add all ingredients except the water and cocoa to a food processor and blend until you achieve a cookie dough consistency, adding water one tablespoon at a time if needed to make dough (if you use peanut flour--I like PB Fit--you will need to add a couple tablespoons or more of water).
  2. If you are starting from whole nuts, grind those first into a fine meal before adding the other ingredients, being careful not to over-process into nut butter.
  3. Once you have a sticky dough, dust your clean hands and a plate with cocoa powder. Roll the dough into bite-size truffles coated with cocoa.
  4. These keep best in the fridge, but should be fine without refrigeration for several hours on the trail.
