Chocolate + Tahini Protein Balls

You gotta TRUST ME on this one because I too was skeptical of tahini as I was always #teampeanutbutter, but these chocolate tahini protein balls 10000% converted me to #TEAMTAHINI !! Plus they are gluten free, vegan, and refined-sugar free!

The only bad thing about this recipe is that its quite a challenge to make the balls… because the dough tastes so good you’re going to want to eat it straight with a spoon (I only know from experience….)

Let’s talk ingredients:

Very minimal, simple ingredients make for the ultimate feel-good snack for any time of day!

All you need is:

  • tahini
  • maple syrup
  • protein powder chocolate or unflavored
  • cacao powder
  • almond flour
  • vanilla extract
  • salt
  • and mini chocolate chips

For the tahini: I usually get mine from Trader Joe’s – they have a really delicious organic tahini! It’s one of the best ones of tried! Other than that, the brand Soom is also quite yummy!
