Member that one time when I only posted ball recipes? Literally, every recipe for for 4 weeks was a ball recipes. Heck- I almost got on Shark Tank for my balls!
Not really, but I like to think I would have been famous for my balls if I would have gone through with that :D
Instead, I shall stay amateur (Davida) ball maker and keep waiting for my big break. Ha. Ha.
Fer real, these balls rock. I finally picked up some hemp seeds from Whole Foods. I got a big bag for like $9.99. I love the texture and color they add to recipes. Plus they’re loaded with protein and healthy fats. SCORE!
Unlike most of my other ball recipes, these balls surprisingly do not have any nut butter inside. They’re made with pitted dates (no other sweetener involved!), cashew meal, shredded coconut, and of course hemp seeds.
<3 my food processor.
I need a bigger one. My little baby one only allows me to make 10 balls at a time.
See how pretty these little seeds are?
I think they look more appealing than chia seeds…which look like ants in my oatmeal. Now I’m not against eating ants, I just think these multi-colored little bugs look more delish!
Plus- I was bit by fire ants as a kid. Forgive and forget? NEVER!
