Ingredients
  

  • cup raw unsalted almonds
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • ½ cup nut or seed butter of choice I love almond
  • ¼ cup honey or agave

Instructions

  • Add the almond butter and honey and pulse until a nice and sticky dough forms.
  • Roll into 10 equal balls by using a tablespoon measuring spoon or a mini ice-cream scooper.
  • Once rolled, dip them in anything toppings you enjoy or leave them plain. Store them in the fridge to firm up for at least an hour and enjoy.

Notes

You can use honey or agave, any nut or seed butter, and also roll them in any toppings you like such as cacao, nuts, coconut etc.
You can use any cacao or cocoa of choice but make sure it’s unsweetened.
Be sure to mix the nut butter in the jar to avoid adding all the oil that sits at the top.
Refrigerate when storing into a glass Tupperware with a lid and enjoy for weeks. These bites won’t last you longer than a few days though as they are incredibly hard to resist.
If you are allergic to nuts you can try replacing the almond with any seeds of choice. Pumpkin or sunflower seeds could work really well in here. You will also have to substitute the nut butter for sun butter as well.
If you are vegan, use agave instead of honey.
