For "date paste":
📍 1/2 cup C&K coffee blend of choice
📍 10 medjool dates

For dough:
📍 1 scoop Clearly Collagen
📍 1/3 cup oat flour
📍 1/4 cup date paste (above)
📍 2 tbsp tapioca starch
📍 1/2 tsp baking powder
📍 1 tsp vanilla extract
📍 Pinch of salt

For cinnamon goo:
📍 1/4 cup date paste (above)
📍 1 tsp brown coconut sugar
📍 2 tsp cinnamon


STEP 1: Brew your coffee and blend together with dates to make "date paste."

STEP 2: Mix together dough ingredients til you have a sticky, consolidated dough.

STEP 3: Pinch off dough pieces and roll into ~1" diameter balls (we got 7 balls out of our batch).

STEP 4: Drop each ball in your cinnamon goo and coat thoroughly before transporting it to your mug. Repeat for all balls.

STEP 5: Microwave for 1 minute on high. Top with remaining goo and a sprinkle of cinnamon, and BOOM! Done!
