These super nutritious little sesame truffles are easy to make, vegan, dairy-free and of course, gluten-free. Don’t let all those labels scare you though, more than anything else, they’re just plain old delicious.

  • ½ cup cashews
  • ¼ cup tahini (I used roasted, though raw will probably work just as well)
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds (I used raw, though you could toast them for a stronger flavor)
  1. Place cashews in food processor and pulse until the texture of coarse sand
  2. Add tahini, agave and vanilla and pulse until smooth
  3. Transfer mixture from food processor to a bowl and refrigerate 2 hours
  4. Roll into 1 inch balls and coat with sesame seeds
  5. Serve
