Chocolate Tahini Bites

by Renee Sexton

​Our black tahini is a pure sesame paste, made by toasting and grinding unhulled black sesame seeds, which are rich in magnesium, and they’re a good source of plant based protein. Black tahini is the sweetest of our tahini collection, and it adds a subtly nutty flavour to raw treats and baking. These bliss balls make great snacks, and with the addition of medjool dates they’re delightfully sweet too.


  • ​9 medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup Chantal Black Tahini
  • 2 tbsp Chantal rice bsyrup or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup of cacao powder
  • ¼ tsp of vanilla paste
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup of almonds
  • ½ tsp Chantal fine sea salt
  • ½ cup Chantal pumpkin seeds

Optional toppings

  • Crushed pistachios
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Black and white sesame seeds


  1. ​Place all of the ingredients in your food processor and blitz until smooth, creamy and sticky. If it’s not sticky enough to roll, you might need to add 1 tbsp of water at a time, until you met the desired texture.
  2. Roll into balls with your hands and then roll over your desired toppings. These will keep in the fridge for one week.
