Prep: 32 minsCook: 5 minsTotal: 37 mins
Servings: 12 1x


  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 3/4 cup blanched almond flour (How to Make Almond Flour)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 tablespoon flaked sea salt, for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts, for sprinkling


  1. First, place the almond flour and hemp hearts in your food processor.
  2. Process for about 20 seconds until everything is chopped up and combined.
  3. Transfer the almond flour mixture to a separate bowl.
  4. Don’t go crazy trying to clean out the tub of the food processor, just try to get most out.
  5. Place the banana, peanut butter, agave, and coconut oil in the food processor.
  6. Process for about 30 seconds.
  7. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides and process again for 5 – 10 seconds.
  8. Add the almond flour mixture and walnuts.
  9. Process until everything is combined.
  10. The batter will be super sticky. Allow the batter to sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes to firm up.
  11. With damp hands, roll the batter into balls, dipping 3/4 of the ball into chocolate and then placing on parchment paper.
  12. You may need to wash your hands every couple balls so they don’t get too sticky when rolling.
  13. Sprinkle with sea salt and additional hemp hearts, if desired.
  14. Pop in the fridge for 5 minutes then EAT!!
