Power Poppers

I wanted to share an amazing snack/treat/dessert with you all this week!

Call it what you want……. to me, it’s a pop of healthy, yummy  goodness.

I got this idea from a great book we’re reading, called  ‘Discover The Power Of Food’. It’s a GREAT book to go through if you are looking to change a few things in your health and diet.

Right now my husband is on a HUGE health kick!  I’ve never seen him make these kind of wonderful changes before. And It’s working, because he’s lost 8 lbs so far!!  Usually, my husband would easily grab a big bag of chips, or multiple cookies and milk to snack on at night. Then I tried this recipe, and it has been such a great alternative full of protein, healthy fats, and deliciousness.

A must try this week!  Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Vegan

Power Poppers ……

  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 Cup walnuts
  • 1/2 Cup hemp hearts
  • 1/4 gr. flax seed
  • 1/2 Cup shredded unsweetened coconut, divided
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 Cup almond butter
  • 1/2 Cup coconut oil softened
  • 1/3 – 1/2 Cup organic honey

Place all seeds, walnuts, cocoa pwd in food processor or magic bullet. Process for 20 – 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl and add in the almond butter, coconut oil, and honey.Mix until well blended. Form into 1 inch balls and roll in remaining coconut if desired (sometimes I skip this step) and put in refrigerator for at least 1 hr before serving.

Did I mention that I am loving adding HEMP SEEDS to almost everything I make!

It’s easy to fuel your body with healthy snacks – pair these up with some bright fruit and veggies, and there you have it. They are so easy to just ‘pop’ right in your mouth!

  1. Hi Kaitlyn,

    Thank you for dropping by for the giveaway!

    I love this recipe. Nourishing, delicious, and rich in wholesome ingredients. What else can we ask for?

    I enjoyed reading some of your posts and it looks that you are doing a great job raising your family. I am going to get some tips from you regarding homeschooling. I don’t homeschool my kids, but I do school work with them and I always need new ideas.
