Choco-Pistachio Powerball

I don't know about you, but I have been on a real chocolate kick this week. In an effort to avoid nasty sugar cravings and falling for processed snacks, I decided to put together some of my favorites for a satisfying chocolate treat.


Pistachios - great source of fiber, omega-3 fats, B6 and potassium


Cacao Powder - insane amount of antioxidants, iron, magnesium, calcium, improved mood


Ginger - anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea


Tahini - copper, selenium, anti-inflammatory


Maple Syrup - manganese, zinc, calcium


Sea Salt - minerals, water balance



These balls are loaded with nutrients that support a healthy blood pressure, thyroid health, strong immune system, and overall reduction in inflammation. Additionally, they contain 4g of fiber and 5 g of protein to keep you full and satisfied!



ingredients:

1 1/3 cup pistachios

10 organic, unsulfered dates, pitted

2/3 cup tahini

3 TBS maple syrup

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/3 cacao powder

1 inch ginger, peeled


for rolling:

1/4 cup raw sesame seeds


Place all of the ingredients except sesame seeds in a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles a thick batter. Roll into 1 inch balls and cover in sesame seeds. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
