Toss 1 cup of the chopped pecans, chocolate protein powder, maple syrup, dates, almond extract, and sea salt into a food processor and process until a ball of dough forms.
Fold in the chopped pieces of dark chocolate
Using a tablespoon or ice cream scooper separate the dough into 7 balls. Then, roll each ball into the remaining 1/4 cup of chopped pecans. Keep rolling the balls to combine the chopped nuts.
Place the bites into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
