Retreat Recipe: Tahini Energy Balls


This September's retreat is sadly behind us & was another incredible weekend of classes, women....and the food!  Molly Oliver, Ayurvedic chef, outdid herself.  The food was thoughtful & seasonal, sustaining & delicious.

Molly arrives Saturday morning with bins & bags of fresh, beautiful, organic fare, then spends the day in the kitchen slowly blending & layering flavors.  Saturday breakfast is light to save room for her feasts & these Tahini Nut-Free Energy Balls were a favorite.

Drop into a food processor:

8 pitted & coarsely chopped medjool dates

1/4 cup raw oats

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut

1/3 cup Tahini

* Tahini is sesame paste & can be found in the international aisle.

Once combined into a sticky batter, roll into 12 balls & refrigerate overnight.  Enjoy ~
