Sesame Bliss Balls
I was a little skeptical of this recipe but they are actually very tasty and a great alternative to ginger cookies! This recipe is from Deepak Chopra and he says that the sesame seed bliss balls promote a healthy digestion and purify the body and mind!!
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds to coat the balls with
- ½ cup raisins
- 2 tsp ground ginger powder
- 2 inches peeled ginger root
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 ½ tsp ground cardamom
- 2 ½ tbsp coconut oil
Place all ingredients (except sesame seeds) in a mixer and wiz until smooth. Shape into small balls (I found the mixture too liquidy to make balls so I used a tiny spoon to make the shapes ) and then coat with sesame seeds. Refrigerate until hard and then ENJOY!!!!
