Today’s No Bake Chocolate Hemp Seed Protein Balls recipe is quick, easy and nutrient packed.

This superfood combination is full of healthy ingredients that will help boost your energy and gives you a treat that you can feel great about.


  • 1 1/2 cup of almonds
  • 1 cup of pitted dates – they should be soft and moist
  • 2 tbsp of Hemp Seeds
  • 2 tbsp of Cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp of unflavored plant based protein powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of Sea Salt
  • 2 tbsp of water

About the ingredients

Hemp seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, which include Omega-3s and Omega-6s. Hemp seeds help balance hormones and are a great addition to your smoothies.

Almonds are a great source of fiber and healthy carbohydrates.

Cacao powder is rich in antioxidants, which helps protect cells from damage. The flavonoids found in chocolate have been shown to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Dates are high in fiber and antioxidants and are naturally sweet.

And sea salt is a great source of electrolytes.


Step 1: Pour your almonds into a food processor and blend into a course flour.

Step 2: Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blend the entire combination into a thick, sticky dough.

You should be able to pinch your dough between your fingers.

If your dough is too dry and crumbly to roll into balls, add 2 tsp of water and process again.

Step 3: Use your hands to roll the dough into about 14 balls


You can refrigerate your protein balls for up to 2 weeks in a sealed container, or freeze them in a freezer safe bag for up to 3 months.


You can also roll your protein balls in shredded coconut, dark chocolate chips or chia seeds depending on your preference.
