A satisfying and healthy chocolate indulgence

These can be considered like adult tootsie-rolls. A healthy, nutrient-packed treat that fuels and satisfies, while providing a healthy dose of magnesium, iron, protein, omega-three fatty acids, and dietary fibers to delight and satisfy children and adults.


Here's what you will need:

- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds

- 1/3 cup hemp hearts


- 3/4 cup rolled oats


- 1.5 cups deglet dates

- 1/4 cup cacao powder

- 1/4 tsp sea salt

- 1 tsp vanilla extract
(or 1 tsp vanilla bean powder,
or the scrapings from 2 vanilla beans)

How to make Healthy Chocolate Chews:

Step 1

Add pumpkin and sunflower seeds to a food processor and pulse until ground to a uniform consistency.  

Step 2

Add rolled oats and process until ground.

Step 3

Add hemp hearts and process until uniform, scraping down the side of the food processor when necessary.

Step 4

Add dates and process until mixture is broken up but not yet forming a cohesive ball.

Step 5

Add the cacao powder, sea salt, and vanilla bean powder and process.  Interrupt processing and scrape down sides as necessary. Continue processing until the ingredients come together into a cohesive, smooth unit with uniform consistency.  

Step 6

Once completely blended and formed into a ball in the food processor, use a spoon to scoop approximately one Tablespoon of batter to form each ruffle. Shape/roll between palms to form individual truffles.
