Chocolate Chia Protein Bites

Valentina

Chocolatey, almost fudgy, and a natural source of plant-based protein. The ingredient list is short here: a blend of seeds, melted chocolate chips, nuts, and some vanilla. Mix it all together, press into a lined container, freeze to harden, and then slice. That's it. You can cut these into long protein bars, but I find that cutting them into smaller bites helps them hold their shape a bit better. Store in the fridge and enjoy as the perfect pick-me-up.

Shopping List
  • 1 1/2 cups salted peanuts
  • 1 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • melted chocolate chips, chopped peanuts (optional, for topping)

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Line a small container of choice with parchment, so that extra parchment paper hangs off of the sides. The flaps will be used to help pull the finished bites out of the container. You can skip lining if using a silicon container/mold. I used 1 (3-cup) glass container measuring 7.5" x 5.5" inches. Any dimension of container will work - it will only affect the height of the finished bites.
  2. Step 2: Place the peanuts, hemp seeds, and chia in a food processor. Blend the mixture until the peanuts reach a flour-like consistency.
  3. Step 3: Add in the vanilla and chocolate. Pulse several times until everything is well combined.
  4. Step 4: Transfer the 'dough' into the prepared container. Press down firmly over the surface, until the container is filled and level. To make the optional topping, drizzle the melted chocolate on top. Scatter chopped nuts over the chocolate. When it hardens, the chocolate will act as a glue for the nuts. Place the container in the freezer to harden for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Step 5: Remove the mixture from the container by pulling up on the flaps. It should pop right out. If it does not, let the edges warm up a bit and then try again. Place on a cutting board and chop the bites into your desired shape.
  6. Serve: Store the bites in the refrigerator or freezer. I like to eat mine directly out of the freezer for an extra chewy bite. Enjoy.
