Hemp and Cashew Bites

Hemp and Cashew Bites (shutterstock_239018125)It can be nearly hopeless once the late morning or afternoon comes along and you’ve discovered you’re hungry. When hunger kicks in, it’s more difficult to make quality food decisions and often times we’ll opt for whatever is quick and easy. Planning and making nutritious snacks ahead of time will really help you stick to a healthy eating plan and limit your intake of processed, high saturated fat foods. Plus, if you’re one who’s running around from meeting to meeting or constantly rushing to get through your daily to-do list, your snack needs to be not only quick to acquire, but quick to consume as well.

These hemp and cashew bites take just a few minutes to make and will last for three to four days, so you can make them ahead of time. The bites, which are in the shape of balls, are made with cashews, dates and hemp seeds, which means they’re high in protein, fiber and essential fatty acids.

This particular recipe, which is constrained by the size of a typical food processor, will make about 10 balls. You can double the recipe to make more balls at a time, but will need an extra large food processor or a quality blender to handle the extra dough.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
30 medjool dates, pitted
½ cup ground cashews
Pinch of salt

Add the dates to a food processor and blend for about 60 seconds or until the dates are completely chopped. Add the hemp seeds, coconut, cashews and salt and mix again until the mixture is thoroughly blended. Use your wet hands or a small ice cream scooper to create 1-inch balls of the dough.

Store the balls in an airtight container. You can keep them in the refrigerator, or the freezer if you prefer the bites to be a little harder.
