Organic Sesame Truffles
A friend of mine sent me this gluten free vegan recipe so everyone can enjoy a healthy dessert.
½ cup (raw) cashews
2 fresh Medjool dates (or 3 Fresh Barhi dates) (add to part of cashews in food processor for best chopping, then add the rest of the cashews)
¼ cup tahini
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup sesame seeds
Place part of cashews in food processor with dates and pulse. When dates are fairly fine, add the rest of the cashews and pulse until the texture of coarse sand.
Add tahini and vanilla and pulse until smooth.
Transfer mixture from food processor to a bowl and refrigerate 2 hours.
Roll into 1-inch balls and coat with sesame seeds.
