Almond Tahini Date Balls
20 mins (prep 20)
4 ingredients
15 servings
Very Middle Eastern and very tasty. A somewhat sophisticated brunch treat if you will, and would also make awesome finger food for tea or a dinner party. Especially if it's one of those where the meal is light but hors d'oeuvres are heavy. And can you believe this awesome treat is healthy and vegan? I couldn't! For some ideas, try a mix of Chinese red dates (I used 100%) with traditional dates. Put in a dash of ground pistachio and/or cardamom, how about a teensy bit of honey? There's a lot more I plan on doing with that huge thing of almonds I bought at BJ's. Found on the internet somewhere, don't remember where. If this is your recipe or you know where it came from, just drop me a line so I can give credit where it is due.
