4-ingredient tahini-maple energy bites {nut free!}

Have you ever tried tahini and maple syrup together?  Oh, you need to.  It’s one of my very favorite flavor combinations.  I’ve used it for salad dressings and for a to-die-for fruit dip that tastes like a vegan caramel dip.  This is my first time throwing them together in an energy ball.  It was a good move.

I’ve wanted to make a nut-free energy ball for a long time.  I usually use almonds or walnuts as the base, but this time I used sunflower seeds.  They worked so well!  I’m happy to have an alternative to switch things up now and again.

These energy balls are super satisfying and you can’t get any easier than blending together 4 ingredients, right?  I just love having these kinds of snacks on hand for times when hunger strikes and I need something quick and healthy.  And I can make them in less than 10 minutes.  Yep.  You need to make a batch.

  1. Love energy balls! Normally tahini isn’t my favorite flavor (like to slather on toast), but when it’s mixed in with other flavors, it’s so good! These look rockin good.

  2. How have I never tried this epic combination? I have SO many sunflower seeds in the pantry so I’ll definitely give these a try. Love that short ingredient list :)
