Description

If you aren’t enjoying tahini on a regular basis, you’re missing out. These tahini chocolate chip protein balls are perfect if you have a nut allergy or just want to try a new flavor combination. 


Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Place oats, tahini, honey, protein powder and chocolate chips in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Getting the mixture to combine takes a little arm muscle and it may seem too thick at first, but it will come together as you keep mixing. I used my hands to knead the dough near the end and that seems to help.
  3. Once combined, use a small cookie scoop to scoop and form the dough into balls.
  4. Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

      I really want to try these but I don’t have the protein powder. Do you think I could replace it with PBfit powder or the peanut butter taste would overpower the tahini? I only buy vanilla protein drink. Maybe replace the honey with it???

        Hey Brigitte – I would make these no-bake energy balls instead since you don’t have protein powder. You can easily swap the peanut butter with tahini. 🙂

      Great recipe! I love that these don’t even need a food processor. This is the third time I’m making these since I saw this post a month ago 🙂

      These are delicious. The tahini gives them a really nice flavour.

      This was a good recipe! I wasn’t sure about the tahini, but it turned out to be a nice substitute for a nut butter. Thank you!
