Are you needing a really quick and easy yet nutritious snack? Goodie balls or bliss balls are a perfect afternoon snack, or something to munch on the run. I recently attended a yoga workshop and these tahini balls were made by one of my friends. I just had to get the recipe and share it….they are delicious!
½ cup tahini
1/3 cup honey (you can play around with the amount of honey depending on what consistency you like)
½ cup desiccated coconut
½ cup LSA (a combination of linseed, sunflower seed and almond which is made into a ground meal; or they taste just as good with just sunflower seeds and linseeds, 1/4 cup of each which were ground fresh in a spice grinder)
1 cup dried apricots
½ cup almonds
Mix all ingredients together.
Roll into balls and let them set in the fridge.
Tahini is a fantastic source of calcium. The linseeds are a fantastic source of omega 3’s which assist in brain function, skin health and mood. It is always best to grind linseeds/flaxseeds fresh to ensure the oil has not gone rancid once the seed has been cracked. Buying pre-ground LSA is convenient, however it is often sold in clear plastic bags that have been exposed to light – this affects the quality of the omega oils you are getting.
