Choc-Mint Hemp Seed Protein Balls

Ingredients:

  • 12 Medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp. Hemp seeds*
  • 1 tbsp. cacao butter (6 buttons)
  •  1 cup walnuts
  • 20 drops pure peppermint extract*
  • 3 tbsps. cacao powder
  • Mixture of your favourite toppings to coat. I used desiccated coconut, Dutch pure cocoa and a cape seed mix (sesame, flaxseed, poppy, sunflower)

Method:

Blitz all the ingredients in a food processor until the mixture sticks and holds together in the palm of your hand then shape into balls before rolling in your favourite topping.  Super easy and quick to make! I spooned 1 tbsp. of mixture to make each ball which yielded 20! Enjoy!

  • Hemp seeds and pure peppermint extract can be found at Organic Grocers or Health Food stores.
