tahini almond date bitesJanuary 28, 2012
no added sugar!
makes 20-22 1-inch bites
12-14 large dates, pitted
1/2 cup almonds (raw, toasted, or sprouted are fine)
1/3 cup tahini
pinch sea salt
1-2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup sesame seeds to coat
In food processor, pulse almonds until crumbly, partly smooth. Add dates, tahini and salt, continue to process. Texture will still be slightly crumbly – add water (1 tablespoon at a time) and dough should quickly form. Form into 1 inch rounds, roll in sesame seeds to coat, and roll in hands to flatten sesame seeds into ball. Cool in refrigerator to firm.
