Chocolate Chai Bites


Ingredients

Ingredients:

Toppings:

Directions

  1. Add tahini, almond butter, and honey into a medium bowl and mix until smooth.
  2. Add herb powders and mix until well combined.
  3. Mix in vanilla extract and hemp seeds.
  4. Mix in chopped chocolate.
  5. Add more cacao powder, a little at a time, until dough is thick enough to hold shape.
  6. Once the dough is thick enough and doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl, roll into 1-inch balls.
  7. Coat with coconut flakes or hemp seeds and enjoy!

What I love about this recipe is that I can taste it as I go and adjust as needed until I have the right flavor and texture. Once the dough is all rolled into yummy little chocolate bites, I keep them stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week.  

Notes

To reduce the sugar content and up the nutritional value, I reduce the honey to under 1/8 of a cup and instead of the dark chocolate, I simply use additional cacao powder.   You could also use finely chopped nuts in place of the chocolate.  They are still delicious and very chocolaty with the raw cacao, but with less sugar!
