I have a wonderful friend who shares a passion for all things food with me. He regularly sends me recipes and links to food related posts from all over the place. Way back in October 2008 he sent me a wonderful recipe for Bliss Balls and we have been making them in our house ever since. These can be made dairy free if you choose your chocolate carefully. So quick and easy to make and the kids love them.
1/2 cup tahini butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup agave or maple syrup
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup coconut, shredded – I use desiccated
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chocolate chips
In a medium-sized mixing bowl combine the tahini, peanut butter, syrup, raisins, chocolate chips and cocoa powder.
Lightly toast the sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and coconut in a dry pan.
Set aside to cool for ten minutes and then add to the mixing bowl and mix well.
Form into small balls by hand.
Roll the balls in a small amount of extra coconut.
Place them on a cookie sheet and put into the refrigerator for 20 minutes to harden.
