I mentioned earlier this week an upcoming recipe for an easy, portable snack for travel. Here it is! The beauties can be made in 5 minutes – quick, easy and delicious.
I love date balls. They are so great and versatile! They are great sweet treat without much guilt. An afternoon pick me up, a pre-workout snack, dessert… mmm. I usually make mine with chocolate, like these Snacky-Balls or these Coconut Truffles, so I thought I would try something different this time.
Vanilla Bean Hemp Snacky Balls (makes 8 treats)
6 Medjool Dates
1 tbsp of coconut oil
1/2 of a vanilla bean, scraped
1 tsp of lacuma powder (optional)
1 tbsp of hemp seeds (for a topping)
Throw your dates, coconut oil, vanilla & lacuma powder in a food processor and pulse until it turns into a crumbly, sticky mixture (almost like a dough). Scoop out the mixture by the teaspoonful and roll it into small bowls. Throw them in a small bowl with the hemp seeds and roll them around until they are covered with seeds. I put mine in the freezer to firm up – the fridge will work too.
