Protein Energy Bites

Makes 15 to 20 balls

Ingredients:

  • 12 soft medjool dates, pitted
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp white sesame seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 heaping tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 heaping tbsp hemp protein powder

Directions:

  1. Dump all the nuts and seeds into the food processor. Blend into coarse crumbs. Add in the rest of the ingredients and pulse until it resembles a sticky crumble.
  2. Feel the crumbs between your fingers. Pulse more if required. It should be sticky enough to form balls. Add a few more pitted medjool dates if required.
  3. Remove crumbs onto a plate. Using your hands, roll crumbs into balls.
  4. These energy bites refrigerate well for up to 2 weeks. Eat as is, or crumble it over a bowl of milk or yogurt. Enjoy.
