Tahinni date balls pic.jpg

OPEN SESAME DATE BALLS:

Skip the energy bar and eat a couple of these tahini date balls instead for an instant power up snack without the crash!
Did you know that due to their fiber and healthy fat content, one of the many health benefits of both dates and sesame seeds (tahini) is that they promote balanced hormones and good digestion.  This is a fabulous combo especially for women who are pregnant or post baby. Combined with raw nuts for added protein, this snack will satiate that sweet tooth craving and keep you going and going!! 
*3 balls is the perfect amount for a snack.

Ingredients:

  • 7 large or 10 small- medjool Dates 

  • 2 heaping tablespoons tahini 

  • 1/2 cup raw almonds

  • 1/4 cup raw pecans

  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes 

Directions:

Blend till combined- the texture may be slightly crumby depending on how moist the dates are but once you make balls either way, it will moisten. Roll in coconut flakes if desired.
