These bites are naturally sweet, packed with fiber, and they contain vitamins, minerals and even plant-based protein! Featuring healthy fats from coconut and hemp, antioxidants and minerals from raw cacao, and hormone-boosting properties from figs that also provide a vanilla-caramel flavor, these bites are a win-win for any woman who wants a guilt-free healthy treat!


  • 1 cup dried Black Mission Figs (sweeter and higher in nutrients than other varieties)
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 3 tablespoons raw, shredded coconut
  • 2-3 tablespoons cacao powder


  1. Add the figs and water to the food processor (or a high speed blender).
  2. Process until you get a nice, thick, dough-like paste.
  3. Now, add the hemp, coconut, and cacao to the food processor/blender.
  4. Process again. You may have to scrape down the sides in between and start again if you’re using a blender. Continue this until you get a fine, cookie-dough like paste that you can roll into balls (takes about 1 minute in the Vitamix or a high-quality food processor).
  5. Stop the machine, and scrape down the sides. Scoop into a bowl, and start rolling the mixture into bite-sized balls with your hands (it will be messy!).
  6. Place the plate of bites into the fridge for at least 1 hour to set or the freezer for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove and serve. Store in the fridge and enjoy 2-3 when you need a quick snack or carry with you on-the-go in a baggie for a healthy treat!
