Gwinganna’s Tahini Balls Recipe – Perfect For A Quick Healthy Snack

Tahini Balls Recipe - Perfect For A Quick Healthy Snack

Rich in essential fat acids (good fats) the tahini ball is a great option for morning or afternoon tea. Tahini has high levels of calcium and fiber important for bones and bowel health respectively. Omega 3, one of the essential fat acids from tahini and LSA, plays an important role in brain function and may aid in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Coconut is a good source for medium chain triglycerides known to be important for liver and bowel health.

The dried fruits and honey add sweetness. It is a healthier option to sugary treats, which are usually also high in trans-saturated fats (bad fats). Although tahini balls are full of goodness, it should be appreciated in moderation. One ball has approximately 110 calories. One daily is enough. You can always alternate it with other healthy snacks such as fruits, nuts and dips.

1/2 cup light tahini
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup LSA
1 cup dried apricot pieces [or fruit mixture of your choice]
1/4 cup chopped almonds

METHOD
