Where do you get your hemp seeds?
From North Coast Naturals but there are lots of other good brands such as Manitoba Harvest and Food to Live.
This looks divine. I love the use of coconut for added texture. Can’t wait to try this!
How many balls are one serving?
For the whole recipe or per serving? A single serving is one ball.
So I just cracked into a fresh bag of my North coast Naturals hemp seeds and I am on a hemp seed craze right now. I am TOTALLY making these!
So sorry that the photography isn’t working for you! I wish I had more insights about photography with artificial light. These snack balls are motivating me to make some ASAP though! Super excited for your trip to Thailand! I stayed at one of the islands for a week, and it was so much fun.
So good to see you on my feed! These look awesome – and omg how does time fly by! I love that you are lifting so much – you go girl. Just goes to prove that vegans do in fact get enough protein 🙂 Have a great day!
Hello!!! I totally get being crazy busy for weeks (or months!!) – where does time go?? I’m hoping to start to slow down a little bit! I’ve missed visiting your site and getting awesome recipes! But I’m back and can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to! 🙂
Loving the recipe – and I totally need to look for that fine coconut! It’s so pretty!!! I’ve not seen it before – but I want some!
Lemme just say that your week of workouts makes me tired just looking at it! I’m about to head out for a quick run, but I’m already feeling like I need to do more! Thanks for the inspiration!!!!
You always have the best little bite recipes!
(Photography is such a struggle. Now in my dorm….which has no good windows for natural light, things are SO difficult!)
I glad I’m not the only one! I’m limited for space in my apartment, I can only imagine a dorm, haha!
