Hemp Heart Energy Bites by Rhyan Geiger, RDN

hemp heart energy bites

 1 cup oatsrolled or quick (I use gluten free)
 ½ cup hemp hearts
 6 datespitted and chopped
 3 tbsp maple syrupyou can also use agave
 ½ tsp vanilla extract
 ½ tsp cinnamon
 pinch of Celtic sea salt
 ¼ cup wateras needed

Place all ingredients in food processor, except for the water, and blend until combined. Use the water one tablespoon at time if needed if mixture isn’t clumping up. I used about 1 tablespoon, use at your discretion. Don’t worry if it’s seems a little too sticky, it will become a bit stiffer once refrigerated. And if it’s a little sticky it will help when you roll the balls in a coating. If the mixture is too wet, try adding a pinch or two of oats. The dryer they are the more they will be a stiffer but chewy cookie, the moister they are they will be more like cookie dough…both ways are good. :)


Next, roll bits of dough into one inch balls. If dough seems too sticky to roll, refrigerate the dough for about 20 minutes before rolling. I got 11 out of this batch, plus the little taste testing I was doing. You should expect about 12 balls. You can roll them in a variety of ingredients. I rolled some in hemp seeds, coconut, cinnamon and cacao powder. I wanted to experiment with different coatings. If rolling in powders be sure to gently lift and drop your coated balls a few times an inch or two above a hard surface to let any excess powder fall off.


Store in the refrigerator and eat within a couple weeks or so, or you can also freeze them and they will last even longer.
