No-Bake Chocolate Tahini Energy Balls

Print

I am always trying to create healthy and easy to go snack for my kids. Tahini is rich in minerals, fiber and healthy fats and is school safe.

Further Food Commentary:

It can be hard to steer your kids away from all the sugar-laden pre-packaged snacks, but this recipe is super simple to make and tastes like cookies! Healthy fats are the basis for these no-bake energy balls — tahini (made from ground sesame seeds), hemp hearts, chia seeds and coconut provide lots of energy and omega-3s for a brain boost. This recipe is also high in fiber and complex carbohydrates which helps to moderate blood sugar levels and stop those sugar highs (and lows)!

    Hey Rachel,
    What’s the advantage of using tahini here? is it for taste? nutrition? could I just as easily use sunbutter?
    Thanks!

    I’ve never seen tahini used in a dessert recipe! I’m a little hesitant… do you think I could swap out the tahini for almond butter?

      Good to know they freeze well, Allegra! I’ve been trying to meal plan more, so these may be a good breakfast-on-the-go to have ready.
