Dark Chocolate Black Bean Power Bites

Dark Chocolate Black Bean Power Bites
As seen at the Calgary Stampede 2017 Kitchen Theatre! Black beans are the secret ingredient in these power bites, providing fibre, protein and healthy carbohydrates. Dates add sweetness, as well as fibre and a source of potassium and phosphorus. Hemp hearts give an extra protein boost, but feel free to mix in other add-ins, like coconut, dried fruit, nuts, seeds or chia seeds - the sky's the limit!
