1/2 cup hemp seeds hulled
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
10 dates, pitted & coarsely chopped
3/4 cup dried tart cherries
Add 1 cup hemp seeds, coconut oil, water, cocoa powder, dates and salt to a powerful blender or food processor. If using regular blender, soak the dates in warm water for 30 minutes & then drain prior to blending. Process until smooth, scraping the sides with spatula. If necessary, add more water to help the “dough” move around. Transfer to a medium bowl, add dried cherries and mix to combine. Place in a freezer for 20 minutes to harden a bit.
Using a small scoop, drop balls of “dough” into a bowl with remaining 1/2 cup hemp hearts and using 2 forks or by shaking the bowl, coat the energy bite in hemp seeds. Alternatively, you can coat only the bottom of the ball. Repeat until run out of “dough”.
