Hemp Seed Cacao Balls

This protein rich ball has saved me numerous times out on the slopes and trails and most recently traveling through Costa Rica where I mixed these together in our hostel. Ingredients are few, it goes together in minutes, travels well, and is delicious!

Makes 12 balls:

-1 cup of raw hemp seeds
-1/2 cup raw cacao powder
-3 tbsp. raw honey or maple syrup
-1/4 cup chopped dried cherries or dried fruit of choice
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
-Raw shredded coconut to coat

In a medium-sized bowl combine hemp, cacao, honey, dried fruit and vanilla with your hands until well blended.

You may need to add a little more honey to bind. Roll into golf ball sized balls and then roll in coconut flakes.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
