Chocolate Hemp Heart Bites

It's hard to come by healthy school snacks at the grocery store these days. And not to mention that fall often times comes with flu season! And with our little munchkins at school, it sometimes gets hard keeping the flu out of our homes!

These Hemp Seed Bites are both loaded with amazing vitamins and are bake free! Because lets admit…sometimes you don’t have time to wait on the oven and just want an easy snack on the go! With this recipe, even though its no bake, you’ll still have to set it in the fridge for at least two to three hours to let the delicious almond butter settle down and stiffen for a less gooey experience!

They’re perfect for lunch boxes and will last up to a month in the fridge! And can you believe that its sugar-free too? Time to throw away those “healthy” sugary snacks in the pantry! I know I’ll have to!

19 Energy Balls



1. I really love gathering all of my ingredients before hand to prevent any mishaps or headaches.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, gently mix all of your ingredients until everything is well incorporated and looks like a thick dough.

3. Grab about 1 tablespoon of the dough and shape into a ball. Setting them on a parchment paper or plate.

4. This step is totally optional, but I like to roll my round goodies in hemp seeds. You should end up with 15-19 chocolate energy bites.

5. Pop in the fridge to set for two hours and then transfer to an airtight container. They will last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

6. Instagram your creations with @emily_kovalev! I enjoy seeing what you came up with!

Recipe notes

*** When you buy Almond Butter, make sure there are only one or two ingredients. Make sure theres no additional sugars. You can find them in the peanut butter isle at walmart.

*** When it comes to Honey and Maple Syrup, try to stay away from the artificially flavored and colored bottles. I buy my honey raw and unfiltered. It tastes so much better than the diluted and heated ones! Same with the maple syrup, look for the least amount of ingredients on the back.

*** I like to buy my Lily’s Chocolate Chips at publix. These chocolate chips are sweetened with stevia, but I can assure you that you won’t have any after-taste!

*** I have not found sugar-free Coconut Flakes at walmart, but I did find some at publix! They should only have on ingredient on the back. Raw Unsweetened Coconut Fakes.

*** Even though this recipe doesn’t have any additionally added sugars, it is still naturally sweetened with honey, maple syrup, and/or lily’s chocolate chips.
