POWER BALLS! Tahini, Peanut Butter, Chia Seed & Coconut

September 15, 2014

I’ve been dying to learn how to use tahini in something other than hummus or as a spread. Plus I’m crazy about chia seeds, so I decided to throw them in there too.

 

So after some research I decided to just jump right into it and try my hand at making a delicious, bite-sized dessert that can also make a great pre-workout snack.

 

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!

 

Ingredients

makes 26-28 pingpong-sized balls

 

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 8 tbs tahini

  • 6 tbs peanut butter

  • 4 tbs oat flour (I use spelt)

  • 2 scoops protein powder

  • 4 tbs unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 4 tbs sunflower seeds

  • 1/4 cup raisins

  • 3 tbs chia seeds

  • 2 tbs raw honey

  • 2 egg whites  

 

For vegan option: put 2 tbs chia seeds in 1/2 cup water set aside for 10 min till thickened, then add to mixture

 

For rolling in: unsweetened coconut flakes, cacao powder, chopped nuts, sesame seeds or licorice root powder. (it’s up to you and your imagination)

 

Method

  • Mash up the banana in a medium bowl, add the tahini and peanut butter, stir well.

  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl, mix well till the dough is formed.

  • If the dough seems a little wet, add some oat flour till you get the consistency that allows you to roll pingpong-sized balls that do not smoulder.

  • In a separate deep dish have coconut flakes ready to roll your power balls in till completely covered.

  • Place the balls on a tray lined with baking paper, cover with plastic and put in the freezer for 20 min.

  • Enjoy after the 20 min. Store remaining power balls in the refrigerator.
