You Need To Make These 5 Ingredient Tahini Balls Every Week

I bought a $100 food processor a few weeks ago. And I haven't got sick of it yet. Time will tell if it goes to appliance heaven, which is the back of my highest cupboard. Where the waffle iron rests. However, I have high hopes for the processor. I'm using it every few days. Acai bowls, cookies, homemade protein powder and a variety of bliss balls. 

Of all the bliss / protein balls I've been whipping up, this tahini recipe has got the most praise. Couldn't be easier. It's protein dense and more nutritious than your tastebuds would believe. It actually reminds me a lot of the Sesame Bar, thanks to the tahini. Only this one is healthy.

5 Ingredient Tahini Balls

  • Takes 8 minutes
  • Makes 25 balls


  • Rolled oats - 2 cups
  • Walnuts - 1 cup
  • Tahini - 3 tablespoons
  • Raw honey - 3 tablespoons
  • Cinnamon - 1 teaspoon


  • Roughly chop the walnuts
  • Add all the ingredients to your food processor and mix for 1-2 minutes
  • These will look light but can be bound together with your hands; alternatively, add two shots/ounces of water and make them condense with 10 more seconds in the food processor
  • Roll onto a tray with baking paper and set in the fridge
  • Ready to eat immediately but best after one hour

I made these guys with a little too much water. Probably put half a cup of water in and they went a little dense and moist. The recipe typed above will hit the sweet spot of 'bindable' and light. If you prefer the ones below, add a little more water:
