Chocolate Fruit and Nut Balls

This recipe is a great snack for the whole family. There Moorish, so you may want to make a double batch. They have the goodness of dried fruit and nuts with added calcium from tahini and antioxidants from the raw cacao. Not forgetting the easily digestible plant based hemp protein powder adding extra nutrients. We are one of the lucky schools, well so it seems, as the students are allowed nuts, making it easy for us. But for those with a nut allergy or intolerance or simply have to abide by a nut free school policy, just omit the nuts and add more dried fruit of your choice. Try sultana's, raisins or apricots. Enjoy they are amazing.

  • 2 Tbsp Hulled Tahini
  • 1/2 Cup Dessicated Coconut
  • 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1-2 Tbsp Hemp Protein Powder

  • Extra 1/2 Cup of Dessicated Coconut for Rolling
