They may be tiny, but they shouldn’t be forgotten about. Sesame Seeds are packed with nutrients and can be used in far more ways than on you hamburger bun. The nutty flavour and little crunch means they are a great addition to salads, stir fries or soups. But let’s go one step further.
Given these ancient seeds can lower cholesterol, increase antioxidant levels, give you glowing skin and strengthen bones they should almost be stored in your medicine cabinet.
Sesame, LSA & Chia Bliss Balls
I’ve put together a slightly untraditional bliss ball here. What is commonly bound with dates or prunes, I have used honey. This makes for a dryer mixture but ensures eat bite is crunchy and packed with nutrients.
Bliss Balls are a high protein snack that will keep you full and energised for hours. Being super easy to make and with a shelf life of two weeks, they are a great snack to have on hand.
LSA (linseed, sunflower seed, almond) mix can be found in the health aisle of most supermarkets or can easily be ground up using a spice grinder. It is a power powder that enhances the nutritional density to these balls.
1 cup Amazin' Pantry whole raw almonds
7g white sesame seeds
2tbs LSA mix
1tbs Amazin' Pantry organic chia seeds
½ cup desiccated coconut
1tbs Amazin' Pantry black raisins
Using a food processor or spice grinder blend the almonds until an almost flour like consistency. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until ground and slightly combined. If the mixture is really dry add a little water or extra honey.
Using your hands roll the mixture into little golf balls, pressing firmly to hold the mixture in place. Keep in the fridge to solidify for half an hour before tucking in. They will store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
There you go! Delicious and healthy snacking can be simple and tasty at the same time. You can now purchase the raw ingredients from our Amazin' Pantry range and get them delivered right to your doorsteps. Try them out this weekend and let us know how it goes.
