2 cups of mixed nuts. I used walnuts and almonds but you can use whichever you prefer. You can also add in some seeds if you like.

1/2 cup of tahini (sesame paste - can be bought from any supermarket of health food store)

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup raw cacao powder (any health food store and some supermarkets)

1/2 cup desiccated coconut (plus extra food for rolling the finished balls in)


  1. Add nuts and seeds together in a food processor and pulse several times until chopped to roughly the same size pieces.

  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until the mixture resembles a dough. If the mixture is sticky, add more coconut. If the mixture is too dry, add more tahini.

  3. Roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into a ball, then roll in desiccated coconut to coat.

  4. Repeat with remaining mixture.

  5. Store in the fridge or the freezer and enjoy as a treat!
