The Ultimate Superfood Bites


These are not meatballs but definitely the best snacks ever! They include some of my favorite things: sunbutter, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and blueberries. I’m heading to the beach in a couple of weeks and these are definitely going in my road trip snack bag. Because let’s all be honest with ourselves, the best part of a road trip isn’t the actual destination, it’s the snacks. The bottom line here: any car ride longer than 10 minutes requires snacks.



  • 5 medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  1. In a food processor, mix dates, sunflower seed butter, chia seeds, and coconut flour until dates are broken down and all ingredients are well combined.
  2. Add coconut flakes and continue to process.
  3. Stir in blueberries and pumpkin seeds.
  4. Roll mixture into small, bite-size balls (10-12).
  5. Store in the refrigerator.
