Tahini Bliss Balls

Snacking just got made simple! I literally cannot believe how easy and delicious these bliss balls are. And I'm not blowing my own trumpet because my incredibly talented nanny and friend gave me the recipe. I must make these at least once a week and they keep really well in the freezer, just pop them into the fridge a few hours before you want to eat them.

In case you didn't know tahini is made from sesame seeds. They're ground up to make a paste the same way peanut butter and cashew butter are made. Tahini is also packed with protein, good fats, and is a great source of thiamin (Vitamin B-1) - good for your nervous system, muscles  and digestion, copper - good for blood vessel and bone health, and phosphorous - good for bones, teeth and removing waste from your kidneys. 

So not only do these balls taste deeeelicious, but they're a nutritional powerhouse, unlike store bought chocolates. Winner!
