This are a great snack that scratches the itch when craving chocolate and gives you an immediate boost of energy without a crash. They can be addicting, but because they are not loaded with refined sugars, you typically don’t even need or desire more than two!
Makes about 20 balls.
16-20 medjool dates (soak in hot water for 5-10 minutes, or longer if very dry)
1/4 cup cacao nibs
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
4 Tbsp hemp seeds (Walmart carries them)
1/4 cup walnuts
Grind walnuts in the food processor until mealy. Add in the nibs, cocoa powder, and half of the hemp seeds. Add dates one at a time and blend until everything is a paste consistency. Turn off the food processor, remove the blade, and roll into balls. Roll the balls in the rest of the hemp seeds. So good!
