This is an old faithful tahini ball recipe that I’ve just revisited after not making them for quite a long time! These are a great substitute when you are having a chocolate craving – but I always use a mix of half raw cacao powder and half organic carob powder to balance them out so that they aren’t too stimulating. For those of you who are like me and are a bit of a “Kitchen Klutz” you can’t go too far wrong with these balls – and you can add whatever superfoods you like into them – they are very satisfying, and they’re healthy!!

The ingredient amounts are up to you – what I’ve put down below is a very rough estimate – just play as you go along and add more of whatever is required to get the right consistency for rolling into balls.

• Soak any dried fruit and nuts that you like overnight – almonds, sultanas, sunflower kernels, pepitas, macadamia nuts, dried apricots etc – then rinse well and chop roughly in a blender (3 cups)
• Put in glass bowl and add a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil and mix well
• Add in a tablespoon of MACA powder or any other superfood powders such as Acai berry, and mix well
• Add in 2 x tablespoons of either raw organic carob or raw organic cacao powder or both!
• Add in 2 x tablespoons of raw unheated honey and mix well
• Add in half a jar of hulled organic tahini and mix well

If the consistency isn’t quite right to roll into balls at this stage (they will be very sticky!), add in some almond meal to help them hold together.

Roll into balls and roll in desiccated coconut (organic, sulphur free please!), and then freeze.

This will make quite a large batch of balls and you can eat them straight from the freezer, or take them with you in a little container for a snack later in the day – don’t eat too many in one sitting because they are quite oily and will go straight through you! (Yes, I learnt this the hard way – one good book and about a dozen tahini balls later….)
