Pack a Punch Cacao Balls
1 c sesame seeds (ground in a coffee grinder)
3 tbsp shredded coconut
1/4 c hemp seeds
1/4 c raw cacao powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 c coconut oil
4 tbsp unpasteurized honey
Melt the oil and honey together gently (just until runny enough to distribute evenly through mixture – otherwise you’ll get random clumps of honey). Mix wet and dry ingredients. Roll into balls. If the mixture is too wet just pop in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up. Store balls in freezer. Eat frozen or thaw. (I like them frozen!)
You can always add flax or chia seeds for even more goodness!
