If you like halava you will love this recipe! I broke my food processor when I made my Chocolate Pistacio snack balls. It was a sad day. But all is well now! My new one came yesterday and its way better then my old one! Everything always has a silver lining, lol.
These are naturally sweetened, healthy, and totally raw! And if your balls come out more like logs, its okay, no one is judging…right?? LOL
Sesame Ball Bites:
6 medjool dates, pitted
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup tahini
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
toasted sesame seeds for the outside
Put everything in a food processor except the toasted sesame seeds. Pulse until everything is nicely mixed and grated up. Take the “dough” and roll it in your hands into palm sized balls. Roll in the toasted sesame seeds. Put them in the freezer for 15 minutes to set, and enjoy!
These little guys pack a punch, and its as easy as throwing things into a food processor, and then rolling them into a ball. They are basically raw, except the pistachios I used are roasted…but use sesame seeds or coconut on the outside instead and you have yourself a healthy raw snack. This is another one that is really versatile. I think next time I’ll use almond butter and walnuts, with sesame seed on the outside.
There’s no added sugar in these, being naturally sweetened by the dates. They are also filled with healthy fats, lean proteins, and healthy carbohydrates for energy. Plus pistachios are natural mood boosters, so eat and enjoy!
Chocolate Pistachio Snack Balls
1 cup almond flour
15 medjool dates, pitted
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp raw cacao
1/3 cup raw cashews
1/3 cup shelled pistachios,
For the outside:
ground up shelled pistachios
Process everything in a food processor until it becomes a thick paste. Roll them into palm sized balls and then roll them in the extra pistachios to coat them. Place them in the freezer to set for a half hour. Enjoy!
These stay good for a up to a week in the fridge, and up to two in the freezer.
