You have heard different opinions on snacking. Some says to eat 3 meals and avoid snacking, and some recommend it as a way to keep your sugar level balance and and to give you an energy boost. Every one has different opinions but if you are a person like me who gets hunger bangs and start feeling shaky between meals then do have some snack. Also be smart while choosing your snack which is healthy. No bake tahini date energy balls are one of my favorite snack.They are so quick and easy to make and have beautiful texture. We all have come across the average date truffle or energy date balls but these cardamom and tahini energy date balls are different for them. The cardamom and tahini work so well to balance the dates that these no bake no cook tahini date balls will make you quite addictive of them. Toasted sesame on the outside is magical and you also get some crunch in the middle from some chopped almonds. The recipe that I am sharing here is a dorm room tahini date energy balls, so delicious and easy to make with only 5 ingredients.
Start by pulsing your almonds in the food processor to chop them coarsely. Don't process them too much to give a crunch in the mixture.
Remove the almonds and set aside.
Now add pitted dates in the food processor along with cardamom powder and tahini paste. Pulse these until the dough is formed. If you feel the dough is too dry to form into balls, add a few tablespoon of water to help it along.
Transfer the dough in the bowl, add already chopped almonds in it.
Shape into medium size balls.
Roll the tahini date balls in the roasted sesame seeds. (You can slo roll these date balls in the pistachio powder for a variation).
Store these date balls in any airtight jar in the fridge. They will keep well for at least a week.
_________ Note: You may also roll these date balls in other toppings such as coconut, chopped nuts or coco powder.
