Total time
These energy balls are a good vegan source of protein - hemp hearts, almonds, and spirulina
Recipe type: gluten & dairy free dessert or snack
Serves: 16-18 balls
  • ½ cup almonds, chopped well
  • ⅓ cup dates, pitted and chopped

optional ingredients:
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds for garnish

  1. Chop almonds well and set aside ¼ cup for garnish.
  2. Place remaining chopped almonds and other ingredients into a food processor or blender. (I used our Vitamix)

  4. Scoop mixture out by the Tbsp, roll into a ball and them roll through reserved chopped almonds, if using.
  5. Continue until remaining mixture is gone.
  6. Serve immediately or chill before serving.
