Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Energy Bites

Print

Dark chocolate and sea salt are definitely two of my favorite foods. To be honest if I had to choose my last meal it would definitely be some combination of the two, plus peanut butter. Anyway, I knew I needed a healthy and delicious way to combine these two. Something that I could eat for dessert and for a snack. I was originally inspired to make these by the dark chocolate sea salt Rx Bar, which are delicious, but not always cost friendly. So i decided to make my own delicious creation!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

​Made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon of tahini contains 1.4 g fiber, 3.5 g polyunsaturated fat and 3 g monounsaturated fat. Additionally, it's rich in phosphorus, lecithin, magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium and methionine, which helps in liver detoxification. As a natural sweetener, vanilla contains essential B vitamins, such as thiamin, niacin, riboflavin and pantothenic acid and is known for its anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties.
