Carob and Tahini Bliss Balls

Makes 12-18 balls

1/2C Tahini
1/2C Desiccated coconut
1/2C Carob powder
1/4C Chopped almonds
1/4C Dried cranberries (or any other dried fruit you like)
Extra coconut for rolling
Water

Mix tahini, coconut, carob, almonds and cranberries together in a bowl
Slowly add a small amount of water at a time, until the mixture holds together. If you add too much and it’s too wet, just add some more coconut or carob to absorb it
Roll into balls and coat in the extra coconut
Store in the refrigerator or freezer

I personally find these sweet enough, as carob is naturally sweet, however you can add up to 1/4C honey if you like. If you do this, you may not need to add the water to hold the mixture together
If you don’t like carob, you can easily substitute cacao, although if you do, you will more than likely need to add the honey as cacao is quite bitter

Process all ingredients in food processor until mixture is still slightly chunky

Keeping processor running, slowly add a small amount of water at a time, until mixture is sticky enough to hold together if you form a ball.
