Raw Cacao Nut Balls with Mesquite

You must try this variation on my Nut Ball Treats theme. Not only do they taste sensational with a hint of caramel but the Mesquite powder adds a lot of extra nutrients.

Mesquite has been used as a staple food by native American desert dwellers for thousands of years. It is high in protein and has a great mineral profile with significant quantities of calcium and magnesium. It also contains the amino acid, lysine and with a low GI of 25 helps maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Nut Balls with Mesquite

230gm raw cashews
130gm raw almonds
35gm Cacao powder
5gm Mesquite powder
8 Fresh dates (Make sure you pit them before using)
1 Tbsp Tahini (I use Tahini made from hulled sesame seeds as the taste is milder than unhulled)
1tsp vanilla essence
Container of Desiccated Coconut

Place all ingredients in Thermomix, high powered blender or food processor and grind at high speed for 45 seconds
Form into balls and roll in desiccated coconut
