I say this every single time, but THESE are my new favorite snack bites. Bee Pollen Chocolate Globes - we are calling them globes because I used an ice cream scooper to make these so they came out pretty large plus I just found it way easier to scoop them out instead of rolling them into balls #lazy.
Fudge-like (put them in the freezer)
Packed with all the goods
I've been adding bee pollen into my morning juices, sprinkling a little on top of my smoothies & yogurt bowls, and trying to sneak it in just about everywhere these days. The taste it slightly sweet- similar to honey obviously, has a chewy texture, and it is so good for you!
Bee Pollen makes everything just look like sunshine when you sprinkle it on top AND it will make you feel just that way; it will strengthen your immune system, reduce inflammation and redness in your skin, can help improve any stress or your mood, it has antimicrobial properties, and helps to detoxify the body! Like I said before it has a slightly chewy texture and I also love it because it sweeten things up a bit without being too over powering that you might find with dates or another sweetener.
I also used raw cacao, sunflower seed butter, ground flaxseed, and mixture of different nuts, and maca powder and just a few other ingredients to pack these with fiber, antioxidants, magnesium, protein, and healthy fats. I placed these in the freezer and kept them there to ensure that each bite had a fudge like taste, but they are perfectly fine kept in the fridge. They will last up to 2 weeks there!
Here's the recipe!
Makes about 10 large bites
2.5 cups mixed nuts (I used brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds)
1/3 cup sunflower seed butter (I used Sunbutter, organic)
3 heaping tbsp. raw cacao powder
2 tbsp. bee pollen
1/2 tbsp. maca powder
3 tbsp. ground flaxseed
As much cinnamon and turmeric as you want! (I never measure these two ingredients)
1. First, blend together the nuts in your food processor.
2. Add the remaining ingredients until a dough like consistency forms. If it is not coming completely together, add a little more sunflower seed butter or a small amount of almond milk or water at a time (start with 1 tbsp). Then mix again. Taste test & adjust!
3. Roll into balls or use your ice cream scoop to make into scoops!
4. Store in the freezer for longer or the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
You can sub any nuts/seeds
Sub any seed/nut butter of your preference but it will affect the taste.
Optional add ins:
Dash of vanilla
Protein powder of choice
