  • 1 cup raw walnuts*
  • 1/2 cup packed pitted dates (medjool is best // measured after pitting)
  • 2/3 cup almond pulp* (or sub almond meal)
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder (plus more for rolling)
  • 3 Tbsp hemp seeds (plus more for rolling)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp creamy almond butter (or other nut or seed butter)


  1. Add walnuts to the food processor and pulse into a meal. Then add dates, almond pulp (or almond meal), cacao or cocoa powder, hemp seeds, sea salt, and almond butter. Mix/pulse to combine. The result should be a moist, dough-like mixture. If too wet, add a bit more cacao powder or hemp seeds.
  2. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Then scoop out rounded Tablespoon amounts (we like this scoop) and carefully form into balls — about 14 (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size). The dough will be somewhat stiff, so use the warmth of your hands to gently form/roll into balls.
  3. Roll in extra hemp seeds or cacao powder (optional). Note: The bites get a fudgy, sticky outer texture when rolled in cacao powder — which we liked. For less-sticky bites, roll in hemp seeds, or even cacao nibs!

  4. Store leftovers in a well-sealed container in the refrigerator up to 1 week or in the freezer up to 1 month.


*Though we haven't tested it, we think cashews, almonds, or sunflower seeds would work in place of the walnuts.
