Looking for a healthy snack to keep you going throughout the day? Reach for one of these power-packed energy balls
• 65g tahini paste
• 350g stoned dried dates
• 30g raw cacao powder
• 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1 Place the tahini paste, dates and cacao powder into a food processor and blend. Have a taste of the mixture and adjust by adding more tahini if necessary.
2 The mixture should be smooth with a hint of nuttiness.
3 Once the dates have combined with the other ingredients and turned into a smooth paste, remove the mixture from the food processor, scraping as much as possible away from the blade and food processor and place in medium bowl.
4 Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
5 Roll the mixture into small balls and place in a lock-seal bag with the sesame seeds. Seal the bag then shake to coat each ball in the sesame seeds.
6 Store in the airtight bag or another airtight container in the refrigerator. They will keep in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
