Preparation

  1. Place the pitted dates in a food processor and process until a ball forms.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a pan on medium-low heat. Once melted, add two tablespoons of millet. Continue to stir millet until toasted. About 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add the hemp hearts, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, remaining coconut oil (2 teaspoons), salt, and nut butter to the processor. Process until thoroughly combined and almost smooth. The dough should be sticky and form into a ball easily. Next, fold in the toasted millet until distribute evenly. The dough should be sticky and shouldn’t be crumbly when you form a ball.
  4. Line a tray with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Shape the dough into balls and place them on the tray.
  5. Roll each ball in the remaining cocoa powder until completely coated. You can top it with other ingredients if desired.
  6. Freeze the balls for 20 minutes until firm or simply enjoy right away! The balls will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for a week and in the freezer for 4 to 8 weeks.
