BT Calgary | posted Tuesday, Jul 26th, 2016


  • 1 cup (250 mL) packed pitted Medjool dates (12-13 large)
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) hulled hemp seed (hemp hearts)
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) chia seeds
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) fine grain sea salt, or to taste
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) raw cacao nibs (or mini dark chocolate chips)


  1. Place dates in a food processor and process until a chunky paste forms.
  2. Add in hemp, chia, sesame, cocoa powder, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Process until thoroughly combined. Pulse in the cacao nibs. The dough should be sticky when pressed between your fingers. If it’s not sticky enough to shape into balls, add a small amount of water (a teaspoon at a time) and process until it comes together.
  3. Shape dough into small balls (about 16) and freeze for 20 minutes or so until firm. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to several weeks.
