These are heavenly and are made using just four ingredients, then dusted with coconut flakes if you choose.
Sesame Date Balls
~16 medjool dates, pits removed
2 tbls warm water
1/4 cup brown sesame seeds
1/3 cup smooth almond butter (I love Barney's)
~3 tbls unsweetened organic shredded coconut (optional)
In your food processor, blend the dates, water and sesame seeds. Once the ingredients are well incorporated (you may need to use a spatula to mix in some of the seeds), add in the almond butter and pulse until everything is blended.
Form balls (or whatever shape you desire ;)) and roll in some coconut.
I wrap in cellophane and store in the fridge.
Yields ~ 7 balls.
Enjoy (while laying in bed on a lazy Sunday morning ;))
