    the80srule's Note:

    Very Middle Eastern and very tasty. A somewhat sophisticated brunch treat if you will, and would also make awesome finger food for tea or a dinner party. Especially if it's one of those where the meal is light but hors d'oeuvres are heavy. And can you believe this awesome treat is healthy and vegan? I couldn't! For some ideas, try a mix of Chinese red dates (I used 100%) with traditional dates. Put in a dash of ground pistachio and/or cardamom, how about a teensy bit of honey? There's a lot more I plan on doing with that huge thing of almonds I bought at BJ's. Found on the internet somewhere, don't remember where. If this is your recipe or you know where it came from, just drop me a line so I can give credit where it is due.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 15



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups sliced almonds (I just used whole almonds)
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons tahini
    • 18 medium dried dates (They MUST be pitless. I use pitless Chinese red dates, which are small, so I used about 25)


    1. 1
      Grind almonds and cinnamon in food processor until finely chopped.
    2. 2
      Add tahini and continue to pulse.
    3. 3
      Add dates and chop until all blended in (be careful with pits!).
    4. 4
      Form into 1" balls and refrigerate.
    5. 5
      Can be eaten chilled or at room temperature, and they also travel well so they make a good brown-bag dessert.

      they were very good, but it took much longer than 20m to make. i rolled them into much smaller balls and got more than 50. but even if i had done the larger balls, it would have taken about 40m to pulse everything and roll.

      dusting them in chocolate might be nice, too.

      Great tahini balls! I used very soft dates and a very liquid tahini, but they are sticking together very well and taste very yummy. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Let's Go To Saudi Arabia / N*A*M*E Forum

      These were so easy. I forgot to add cinnamon and they were still yummy. I used whole raw almonds, and soft Iranian Parnoosh brand dates plus a poor thin tahini. I can see these may be be good with variations in the nuts. Made for Veggie Swap 24 ~ July 2010 ~
