Black Sesame Bliss Balls

Black Sesame Bliss Balls (Paleo-friendly)

Private Yoga Santa Monica Los Angeles Brentwood Pacific Palisades Bel Air Venice Marina del Rey Black Sesame Bliss BallsOk, true confession. I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

But I try not to eat them.

They’re processed, loaded with sugar and just not one of the greatest sweet choices you could make.

Suffice it to say I’ve been on a life-long hunt to make something that tastes like RPBC’s but is healthy.

When my mom told me about this new culinary discovery – Black Tahini – I created these Black Sesame Bliss Balls and OMG, they are eerily reminiscent of RPBCs, but are peanut-free, gluten-free, white-sugar free and high in protein! Not bad for a happy accident.

They’re also not loaded in fruit sugars because they don’t have dates or figs as the main ingredient.

The only unusual ingredient is Black Tahini – just ground up black sesame seeds. I got mine on Amazon.

INGREDIENTS (makes a dozen 2″ balls)

1 C almond flour (super fine)

1/2 C shredded organic coconut (unsweetened)

1/2 C finely chopped walnuts

1 TSP kosher salt

1 TSP vanilla extract

4 TBSP black tahini

2 heaping TBSP liquid sweetener of your choice (I like honey and maple syrup)

*cocoa powder, black sesame seeds, or shredded coconut for rolling

DIRECTIONS

Mix all ingredients except [*].

Chill in freezer for 15 min.

Roll into 2″ balls, then roll in cocoa, black sesame seeds, or coconut.

Store chilled & Enjoy!
