1 cup hemp hearts
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 cups shredded coconut
1/4 cup ground chia
3/4 cup raw cacao
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground vanilla bean
1 1/2 cups pitted honey dates -- picked through
1 or 2 tbsp vanilla extract or water
For this recipe you will need a food processor or something that can also function like a food processor.
1. process hemp hearts, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, ground chia, raw cacao, sea salt, and ground vanilla until perfectly reduced to dust.
2. add dates and pulse until combined well. Or until you lose your mind.
3. add vanilla and as little water as possible whilst running the processor until a thick dough forms. (Do not add too much water. If it isn't stuck together in a blob and is crumbly or sandy looking, you need more water. If it's like a paste, you've added to much, and you won't be able to make it into balls. Press it into a silicone pan and chill, then cut into small squares if you end up adding too much water. It will still be delicious.)
4. let sit for a while
5. roll into balls, and roll the balls in shredded coconut.
