Chocolate Coconut Hemp Energy Bites

Jul 9, 2021Hemp Butter Recipes

These little nutrient dense, energy packed bites are super delish and just perfect as a grab and go breakfast, packed in lunch boxes, or served with some coffee or tea and enjoyed as an afternoon snack.

The super seed you see along the outside, are hemp seeds.  I’m fairly new to hemp seeds but have been finding some fun ways to work them into my C&D kitchen (see below for more ideas).

I love their creamy texture and mild, nutty flavor.  And get this, just 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds offer 10 grams of plant based protein. That’s pretty impressive for such a small seed.

Try adding this recipe to your weekend meal prep so you have them ready to go for a busy week.  This recipe is also super easy double (or triple), and freezes well, so keep that in mind when you are getting your meal prep done.
