These are great for on the go. They are very lightly sweetened so they make a nutritious snack and no baking is required making them quick to prepare.

Ingredients, makes 12 balls

1/2 cup organic un-hulled tahini (there’s is more fibre in un-hulled). Or use my homemade tahini 

1/2 cup organic almond meal

1/8 cup organic coconut nectar, honey or brown rice syrup

1/2 cup organic shredded coconut

3 tbsp organic sesame seeds

1/4 tsp orgainc unrefined sea salt


1) Combine all ingredients, (apart from the sesame seeds) into a bowl and mix well

2) Roll mixture into 12 balls (each ball can be around 1 large tbsp in size), then roll each in the sesame seeds

3) Place into an airtight container and store into the fridge

    Where do I buy tahini and agave from ?

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Nicole,

      You can purchase it from health food stores. Tahini you can get from the health food section of the supermarket too. I buy my agave from ‘Loving Earth’ they are a Melbourne, Australian based brand who have great chocolate and other products too. Here’s their website http://www.lovingearth.net

    Hi AJ
    Is there anything else that can be used as a substitute for agave?

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Cristina,

      You can use honey or maple syrup instead! Make sure it’s raw, un-pasteurised honey though, that way the nutrients have not been destroyed by the heat of pasteurisation. And B grade maple syrup has the most nutrients.
