Meant to send you this a while ago! This is one of my favorite things to make for on-the-go eating. Came up with a few recipes like this a while back as I was tired of buying protein bars, etc for a quick bite at work. Has some sugar in it from the fruit, but very healthy overall 🙂
Coconut Hemp Energy Balls
These are great for a quick, satiating snack on-the-go. They are packed full of healthy ingredients that provide both energy and sustenance. Mix it up each time by changing the fruit and/or nuts. Enjoy!
Ingredients (all organic when possible):
⅔ cup dried fruit (I usually use mango or mixed berries – soak in water to soften first before cutting up into small pieces)
⅔ cup cashew pieces (or a mix – I like walnuts in there as well)
⅔ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 Tbsp chia seeds
2 Tbsp hemp hearts
1 Tbsp hemp protein powder
1 Tbsp coconut flour
2 Tbsp raw local honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp almond butter (or coconut butter, or a mix of the 2)
Combine main group of ingredients in a large bowl – crush nuts into small pieces first if need be.
Soften coconut oil and butter(s) in a small saucepan and combine with other ingredients
Mix everything together thoroughly
Mold into balls w/clean hands – this will be messy but it’s fun 🙂
Lick the bowl and your fingers 🙂
Put balls in fridge for 30 min to harden before eating.
Fresh for 2 weeks in fridge. They’ll get eaten long before then though…
(I usually 3x this recipe since I make some for family/friends)
