Sweet Apple Burgers
Who said the burgers could not be sweet. Well, I think everything is possible in the culinary. Here's a fast and easy effortless snack idea. It is spectacular, isn't it. It's high in protein, delicious and very healthy. It's also vegan.
3 cups walnuts
10 medjool dates
1 tbsp protein powder
3 tbsp protein chocolate spread
1 cup granola
3 cinnamon sticks
Soak the dates for about 15 minutes in hot water. Peel the skin and remove the pit. Blend or mash with a fork to obtain a puree.
Blend the walnuts and 3 cups of water. Strain the walnuts with a nut milk bag or cheesecloth. Squeeze well until you get all the liquid. You get a BONUS - walnut milk.
- For healthier version, soak the walnuts overnight. It's good for digestion and gut health.
Combine the walnut meal, left in the cheesecloth, with protein powder and the dates puree. Mix well and shape by hand three burgers.
Cut the apples into slices. Make layers by placing the sweet burgers in the middle, then a slice of apple, protein chocolate spread and make a layer with granola and again an apple. Finish with cinnamon sticks.
