B&W Balls

Think sesame seeds are only a savory ingredient? think again! They work wonderfully in desserts. I was looking for a way to get lots of goodness into my newly vegan husband (yay!) and came up with these. 

They have a strong molasses flavour, hint of spice and are packed full of omega 3's and calcium (among other things). These sweet nut truffles are the perfect daily bite size treat. If you're not keen on molasses feel free to sub in another sweetener and up the quantities of carob and spices.

B&W Balls
Makes  approximately 35 balls (55-60 cals per ball)
1/2 cup pepitas
1/2 cup almonds
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1cup boiling water
4 tbsp carob
2 tbsp molasses
1 tbsp mixed spices
1 cup flaxseed meal (ground flax)
5 tsp sweetner (natvia)
sesame seeds to roll in- approx 3 tbsp
  • soak almonds and pepitas overnight OR pour boiling water over and leave for 15 mins
  • blend well
  • add flax
  • process
  • add spices, molasses, carob
  • process
  • oil hands- roll into heaped tsp size balls
  • roll in sesame seeds
  • refrigerate/freeze to keep for an extended period
  • enjoy!
Hope you're all well and happy,

  1. These look great! And I totally just pinned them... ;)

    Think I could use a little extra cocoa powder instead of carob?

  2. always! you can use cacao or coco powder, they'd taste wonderful too. My hubs just loves carob that's why I chose it.
