Pumpkin Seed Hemp Energy Balls

  • Author: Allison


These pumpkin seed hemp energy balls are studded with dark chocolate and dates. High in iron, magnesium, and protein, they are the perfect pick-me-up!


  • 12 large soft pitted Medjool dates (the softer they are, the easier they will blend)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seed butter
  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts (also called hulled hemp seeds)
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 4050 grams chopped dark chocolate (1 standard-sized bar)


  1. Place the dates, pumpkin seed butter, hemp, and salt in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Process until the mixture comes together.
  2. Add the chopped dark chocolate and pulse until combined.
  3. Form the mixture into 12 uniform balls.
  4. Store the energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.


Any nut or seed butter will work in this recipe!
