These are perfect on-the-run, or as an energy or candy bar replacement that won’t spike blood sugar.

Makes 18 balls

1 cup virgin coconut oil, softened to room temperature

1 cup organic butter, softened to room temperature

Alcohol-free vanilla stevia, to taste

½ cup high-fiber hemp protein (I use
Nutiva) or plain whey protein

Sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg to taste

1/3 cup tahini or pumpkin seed butter

Hempseed and/or crushed pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, walnuts, or almonds, or roasted sesame seeds.

Optional: ½ tsp. alcohol-free flavoring such as banana, maple, anise, mint, or fresh citrus zest

Combine ingredients thoroughly and refrigerate until firm (about half an hour). Roll into golf ball-sized balls (a mini ice cream scooper works well), then roll in/coat with your choice of hempseed and/or crushed pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, walnuts, or almonds, or roasted sesame seeds. Keep refrigerated.
