Chocolate Tahini Bliss Balls

by Emma Swanston

Time: 25 minutes | Serve: 12
Gluten Free / Dairy Free / Vegan

Ingredients

1/4 cup of unhulled tahini

1/8 cup of maple syrup

1/4 cup of finely shredded coconut

1/4 cup of almond meal

1/4 cup of quinoa flakes

1/8 cup cacao

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp instant espresso – to help enhance the richness of the chocolate

Sprinkles

Cacao

Coconut flakes

 

Method

Place all ingredients into a medium-size bowl and stir to combine.

If the mixture is a little dry add a splash of water (a teaspoon at a time) until it sticks together to form a sticky ‘dough’.

Scoop a small section of dough and shape roll in the palm of your hand to shape into bite-size balls, repeat until all the mixture has been used.

Tip: Use approximately 1 heaping teaspoon per bite which makes them the perfect size for popping into your mouth on the down-low, so you don’t have to share!

If you are going to coat your bliss bites in cacao, coconut or sprinkles simply place your cacao, coconut and/or sprinkles into a small bowl or zip lock bag and gently shake until nicely coated. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Enjoy!
