Chocolate Energy Bites

with walnut, hemp & maca

Enjoy these easy to make, portable, tasty, fun flavorful bites that can save you money on the snack bars and energy bites that are so seductive in health food stores.


½ Cup Navitas Naturals Hemp Seeds
¼ Cup Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder
3 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder
¾ Cup Walnuts
6–8 Medjool Dates (depends on size; 6 large or 8 small)
Generous pinch Sea Salt


  1. In a food processor fitted with the S blade, grind walnuts, salt, and hemp seeds till fine. Add the dates, cacao, and maca, and blend till the mixture is uniform and holds together well.
  2. Shape into 18-20 balls. Store in the fridge to firm them up and to keep them fresh. They should last at least a week, unless you eat them all first!

Chef's Notes

Quick, easy, and very snackable! Of course, if you have an allergy to walnuts, you could make these with a mix of pumpkin seeds and hemp seeds rather than the nuts. And you could also add cinnamon or even a little chili for a kick. You can also try these with mesquite.
