We love this recipe because it will make you feel full and provide lasting energy with healthy fats, fiber and protein. It’s also very low in sugar (which is not the case for most commercial balls or bars) but has a sweetness from the coconut, cinnamon and vanilla.
½ cup pumpkin seeds
3 tbsp hemp seeds
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp protein powder of choice (optional)
3 tbsp coconut manna (butter)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
Pulse pumpkin seeds to small pieces/flour in a food processor.
Add all other ingredients and blend until well combined as a dough. (Dough may be slightly crumbly, but should have enough moisture to hold. Balls will firm up once chilled in refrigerator.)
Measure out about 1 tbsp portions and roll into balls. Makes ~10 balls.
Place in sealed container in refrigerator or freezer.
