You asked, we delivered! By popular demand, these VEGAN seed cycling brownie bites are a new, plant-based take on our popular collagen version.
Energy bites are one my all-time favorite snacks; full of healthy fat, energy-providing carbs, and fiber. I originally made these bites as an easy way to get in my daily servings of seeds when seed cycling for hormone balance. But even if you’re not seed cycling, I think you’re going to like them (because healthy, chewy brownies always win).
Seed cycling servings. This recipe makes 30 bites. One serving is 2 bites, which contains both of the tablespoons of seeds (pumpkin/flax or sunflower/sesame) you need daily if you’re seed cycling. In total, this recipe makes 15 servings; just the right amount for one phase of your cycle before needing to switch seeds.

Vegan seed cycling brownie bites; a convenient, tasty, and healthy snack to get in your daily dose of seeds when seed cycling to balance your hormones naturally. Seed cycling can regulate your period, reduce PMS symptoms, and increase fertility naturally.
- 1 cup raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds or raw, unsalted sunflower seeds (see notes)
- 1 cup raw flaxseeds or raw sesame seeds (see notes)
- 1 cup raw walnuts
- 3 cups pitted Medjool dates, packed
- 1 cup cocoa powder, plus more for rolling
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
- Grind the seeds in a coffee grinder or high-speed blender.
To a food processor, add the ground seeds and the remaining ingredients. Process until the mixture is the consistency of sand and easily sticks together when pressed between your fingers. The consistency of the mixture will largely depend on which seeds you’re using and the moistness of your dates. If the mixture is too dry to stick together, add warm water, 1 teaspoon at a time and continue to process until the right consistency is reached.
Add a bit of cocoa powder to an empty bowl for rolling.
Using a tablespoon, scoop a heaping tablespoon from the food processor and form into a ball. Repeat until all of the mixture is used up.
Roll each ball in cocoa powder to coat and arrange on a plate in a single layer. Repeat until 30 balls are formed.
Once all the balls are formed, freeze the plate of bites in a single layer. Once frozen, transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge.
Seeds. If you’re in the first half of your cycle (Day 1-14 where Day 1 is the first day of your period), use pumpkin seeds and flax seeds. If you’re in the second half of your cycle (Day 15-28), use sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. Click here to learn more about seed cycling for hormone balance.

Since this recipe makes 20 servings would you keep the extras in the freezer until the next cycle (that you’d use those seeds) rolls around?
Or is it ok to eat the extras in that phase so they don’t go to waste?
Ally Milligan says
Hi Emily! I actually just changed the directions so that 30 bites are made to make it easier (2 bites per serving). If you still end up with extra, simply freeze them until the next cycle.
I discovered I don’t have any cocoa powder so omitted it and intended to add some chocolate chips. However, these are delicious without any chocolate or cocoa. I hope seed cycling has a beneficial effect on my skin but even if not these are very yummy!
Hi Erin – thanks so much for sharing! I never thought to try them without the chocolate, glad they worked out!
Hi, are the walnuts necessary? I have a nut allergy
Hi Margaret! For this recipe, I think the walnuts are necessary – you could potentially try to sub with more seeds or seed butter, but I haven’t tried myself! If you’re looking for a nut-free seed cycling energy bite recipe, this collagen version is nut-free!
