CHOCOLATE COCONUT HEMP HEART BITES RECIPE
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup of almond butter
1/4 cup hemp seeds
3 tablespoons of maple syrup (which could also be honey)
3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
pinch of salt
Gently mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl until everything is well incorporated and looks like a thick dough.
Grab about 1 tablespoon of the dough and shape into a ball. Then this step is totally optional but I like to roll the outside in a few more hemp seeds as well.
Place on a rimmed baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, and repeat until you have worked through all the dough. You will have about 15 balls.
Pop in the fridge to set for two hours and then transfer to an airtight container. They will last up to 2 week in the fridge.
