Quinoa Hemp Snack Balls

If you’re sitting next to me on the bus, these very well might be in my purse. And if you were on my most recent flight, they were most definitely in my carry-on (along with three of these quinoa burritos) – laugh/cry. Snack balls, energy bites, zoom balls – these little bite-sized treats check all the boxes. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this version, in particular, is extra special because they’re made with quinoa flakes – imagine rolled (or instant) oats but made from quinoa instead. A brilliant, super versatile ingredient I’ve been playing around with a lot lately. What else? Sunflower seed butter works as the binder for all sorts of other goodness including toasted coconut, and a good amount of hemp and chia seeds. To achieve peak hippie snack status, I rolled them in a bee pollen coconut blend! They’re great! Here’s the video of how they come together…

I mention in the video that you can certainly substitute oats if you aren’t able to track down quinoa flakes. No big deal at all.
