Chocolate Tahini Balls

Looking for something to settle that sweet craving??? All it will take is just 1 of these balls. They are naturally sweetened from the dates, and nutritious from the tahini and cacao.  There are only a few ingredients and a couple of steps, so before long you will have these beauties ready and waiting for you. 


4 Medjool dates, pitted
3 tablespoons tahini
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
black and white sesame seeds for coating


Place the dates in a small food processor and blitz until it becomes a sticky paste.

Add the remainder of the ingredients and blitz until you get a crumbly texture.

Place the sesame seeds on a plate. Rolls the mixture into balls and then roll them in the seeds. Place on a lined tray and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.

Keep in the fridge for 2 weeks in a well-sealed container or in the freezer for 3 months.

Makes 9 balls
