Raw Sunflower Protein Bites

These were created on a whim when I wanted "dessert" yet needed a little protein post-trail run.
Simple and fast, almost anything can be thrown into the food processor with enough delicious sunflower seed butter and banana and still taste good.  (I have yet to make a raw bean cookie; I'll let you know how that turns out).

I popped these into the freezer to firm up before eating; you can remove them right away and enjoy as is or roll them in additional cacao powder for a prettier and more nutritional snack.

Raw Sunflower Protein Bites


1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon sunflower seed butter
1/2 of a banana
1/2 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2-4 tablespoons water or nondairy coconut milk as needed


1.  Food process sunflower seeds and chia seeds until coarsely ground.  Add in sunflower seed butter, 1/4 to 1/2 of a banana, coconut, splash of water or nondairy milk, vanilla, and cacao.

2.  Roll into little balls and freeze for at least an hour to firm.
