Tahini fudge balls

Fudgy. Chewy. Soft. Earthy. Chocolaty. What more could you ask for!? Oh, so you want amazing health benefits too? You’ve got it!!

These treats not only taste incrediball incredible, but they also pack a serious nutritional punch. Tahini is sesame seed butter, which provides protein (5 g per tablespoon), important B vitamins for energy, vitamin E, and calcium (almost 100 mg per tablespoon!) to support healthy bones. Hemp seeds are high in essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, which can help to reduce inflammation in the body. With beautifying walnuts thrown in there to further increase omega-3, and medjool dates and cacao powder to boost energy (plus loads of other vitamins and minerals), they really are a nutritious snack to include in your diet… Just be sure to share. 😉

 

 

Ingredients

1¼ Cups walnuts

1 Cup medjool dates, pitted (we used 10 dates)

1 Tablespoon tahini (or substitute for peanut butter)

1/3 Cup hemp seeds

3 Tablespoons cacao powder

½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste OR 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon of sea salt

 

 

Method

  1. In a food processor, whiz up your walnuts until they resemble a fine meal. Remove from processor.
  2. Process your pitted dates until a ball forms, and scrape down the sides.
  3. Add back in your walnuts and all remaining ingredients, and process until well combined. You should have a soft mixture that can be pressed together.
  4. Roll small handfuls into balls.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving (if you can wait that long!)
  6. Keep refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 5 days.

 

Makes 16-18 balls.
