Paleo Protein Maple Cashew Nut Bites

Yes, Admittingly I found a loop hole in my No Baking Blackout.  But Raw Treats are truly some of my Favorites!  

Ingredients:
Cashews 1 & 1/2 cup
Medjool Dates 1 cup pitted/softened
Nut Butter 1/2 cup (Sunbutter used)
Maple Syrup 2 tablespoons pure (also can use Agave or Honey)
Vanilla Protein Powder 1/2 cup Glutenfree 

To soften Medjool Dates place in warm water until soft or bing in microwave for 1 minute.  Pulse 1 cup of the Cashews in food processor until finely grated.  Remove and place in a bowl.  Pulse the remaining Cashews but only a bit (leave chunky) and place in bowl also.  Next pulse Medjool Dates in processor until smooth, creamy paste forms.  Add the Nut Butter and Maple and blend until smooth.  Add Date paste and Protein Powder to Cashews and knead like dough until everything is mixed.  Roll into balls then pop into ya mouth!
