Kat James’ Nut, Hempseed, & Butter Balls

18 balls


  • 1 cup virgin coconut oil, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup organic butter, softened to room temperature
  • Alcohol-free vanilla stevia, to taste
  • ½ cup high-fiber hemp protein (I use Nutiva) or plain whey protein
  • Sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg to taste
  • 1/3 cup tahini or pumpkin seed butter
  • Hempseed and/or crushed pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, or almonds, or roasted sesame seeds.
  • Optional: ½ tsp. alcohol-free flavoring such as banana, maple, anise, mint, or fresh citrus zest


  1. Combine ingredients thoroughly and refrigerate until firm (about half an hour). Roll into golf ball-sized balls (a mini ice cream scoop works well), then roll in your choice of hempseed and/or crushed pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, or roasted sesame seeds. Keep refrigerated.
