Fast easy recipe.
Delicious complex flavor.
Please use organic ingredients as much as possible. Your body will thank you.
- 1 cup whole cashews
- ½ cup tahini
- ½ cup honey (this must be unpasteurized or raw honey, or dehydrated cane sugar otherwise it won’t harden)
- ½ tsp vanilla
- ¼ tsp Himilayan Rock salt
Blend all of the ingredients in the food processor until the cashews become a meal and all the ingredients stick together into a big ball (30-60 sec). Form the dough into long tubes, then break off bits to roll into balls. This recipe makes around 28-30 small balls. Refrigerate until the balls are fairly stiff, reshape them if necessary, then roll in saucers of coconut, sesame seeds, cinnamon … OR … dip the cashew balls in melted chocolate … oh the possibilities are endless!
If you want to get really fancy, roll half the balls in black sesame seeds and half in white sesame seeds and arrange on a square platter in a checker board design. Get even fancier by sticking a goji berry in some of them – another way to create eye, mouth and belly candy …
My personal taste favourite: covered with a thick layer of cinnamon. M-m-mmm
