Almond Butter Cacao Bites



  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/8 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Add almonds to a food processor and pulse until you get coarse crumbs
  2. (Set 2 tbsp. aside to roll the balls in later)
  3. Add dates, peanut butter, cacao powder, maple syrup, cinnamon, sea salt and hemp seeds in a food processor
  4. Pulse on and off until you get a smooth, thick malleable texture.  The ‘dough’ should come together in a ball.
  5. Put mixture into a small mixing bowl and stir in mini chocolate chips.
  6. Form into balls and roll in saved ground almonds or more hemp seeds.
  7. Set on a tray and refrigerate for 1 hour or freeze for 15 minutes.  Best when cold.
