No-Bake Chocolate Hemp Brownie Bites

I have been having SO much fun playing with hemp seeds, that I just had to share this recipe with you before it even makes it into a YouTube video.

Imagine a little energy ball, that tastes a lot like a brownie and is packed with nutrients and heart-healthy ingredients.

Actually, what am I talking about?! You don’t have to imagine because this is it!  This is it right here.

These balls are raw, vegan, gluten-free and have no added sugars (all of the sweetness comes from the dates) so you can feel good about enjoying them as a snack, packed in a lunch box, or as a grab-and-go breakfast for the busiest of mornings.

No-Bake Brownie Hemp Bites

Yield: 16 Brownie Bites

Prep Time:20 minutes

Cook Time:0 minutes

Total Time:20 minutes

Ingredients:

  •  7-8 Medjool dates, pitted (100 grams)
  • 1 cup cashews, raw
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds (+ more for rolling)
  • 2 tablespoons cashew butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
 

Directions:

  • Rip the dates apart and place them in the food processor.  Pulse back and forth, in each direction until the dates have broken down and formed into a sticky ball.
  • Remove from the food processor and place the reminder of the ingredients into the food processor.  Pulse again until all the ingredients are broken down and blended together.
  • Add the dates back to the food processor and pulse until everything is blended into a sticky dough.
  • Transfer mixture into a small bowl and scoop up about 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll it in your palms to form a ball.  Roll the ball in some extra hemp seeds and place on a rimmed baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.  Repeat until you have rolled out all of the balls (you will have 16 balls).
  • Pop in the fridge for a couple of hours to set up and then transfer into an airtight container.  These brownie bites will last in the fridge for up to one month.
