CACAO TAHINI BALLS
Yields ~ 20 balls1 ½ cups shredded coconut, unsweetened
1 ½ cups almond flour
3 medjool dates, pitted
4 tablespoons chia and/or hemp seeds
½ cup tahini
1 tablespoon coconut oil
¼ cup cacao nibs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
Sea salt

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend for about 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides as you go. You should get a thick paste/ball. If you need to thicken, add more coconut or almond flour; if you need to thin, add a bit more tahini or coconut oil.
  2. Place the paste in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm up, this will help with making the balls.
  3. Scoop out balls approximately 2 teaspoons in size and arrange on a baking sheet lined in parchment.
  4. Put in the refrigerator or the freezer. They should be good to enjoy in about 30 minutes! Keep covered in the fridge for one week or the freezer for a month.

1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Small pinch of sea salt
cup of dried goji berries or shredded coconut shavings (optional)

  2. While the food processor is running, add in the dates one at a time.
    ​Add in all other ingredients​ and blend until everything is ​well ​combined. The mixture should be slightly sticky but holding together. Place the mixture in a bowl and refrigerate for ~ 20 minutes.

    ​and/​or coconut shavings on a plate.
  4. Wet your hands slightly with water and form the truffles between your hands. They should be slightly smaller than a ping pong ball.
