Chocolate Hemp Energy Bites

Yield: 15

1 cup pitted medjool dates
2 cups walnuts
1/3 cup cacao powder
2 tbsp hemp seeds, plus more for rolling
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 tbsp almond butter (or other nut or seed butter)
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

1. Add dates to a food processor and pulse until small bites remain or a ball forms. Scoop out and set aside.
2. Add walnuts to the food processor and pulse into a fine meal.
3. Add cacao powder, hemp seeds, and sea salt. Pulse a few more times to combine. 
4. Add the dates back in along with the almond butter and melted coconut oil. Pulse to combine. The result should be a moist dough-like mixture. If too wet, add a bit more cacao powder or hemp seeds.
5. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
6. Scoop out rounded tablespoon amounts and carefully form into balls. 
7. Roll in extra hemp seeds.
8. Store leftovers in a well-sealed container in the refrigerator up to 1 week or in the freezer up to 1 month.
