Makes 22 bites.
- 3/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (I used medium size)
- 1/4 cup agave/coconut nectar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- zest of 1 lemon
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes for rolling
Take the first 6 ingredients and combine in a blender or food processor until a dough forms that is fairly smooth. Adjust sweetness to taste. Melt the coconut oil very gently over low heat until just melted. Then while the blender or food processor is running add the coconut oil in and mix until evenly distributed.
Now take spoonfuls out and shape into balls. The dough will feel a little oily but don’t worry, the chilled bites will not be! Put the 1/3 cup coconut flakes on a flat plate and roll each ball in the coconut. Place the finished bites onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and when all are finished put in the freezer for at least 1/2 an hour to firm up. Store in the fridge or freezer.
