Course: Dessert
Servings: 10 Bites
Calories: 228kcal


  • ounces dark , vegan chocolate
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios
  • 6 pitted Medjool dates
  • cup tahini
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3-4 tablespoons melted coconut oil (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


  • Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler, then set it aside to cool.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a food processor to finely chop the pistachios. Reserve 3 tablespoons of these finely chopped pistachios for later. To the remaining pistachios in the food processor, add the melted chocolate, dates, tahini, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and salt. Process until the mixture forms a ball and comes together around the blade.
  • Remove the mixture from the food processor and knead by hand on a sheet of wax paper. If mixture is crumbly, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil at a time and knead until you achieve a smooth consistency. If you can easily shape the mixture into any form without adding coconut oil, skip this step.
  • Roll the dough into ten small balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Gently flatten each ball with your hand to create a small disc. Chill until firm, about 20 minutes.
  • In three separate bowls, place the reserved finely chopped pistachios, sesame seeds, and the remaining cocoa powder. Just before serving, decorate the balls by dipping each into the bowls one at a time, creating an outer coating.


These balls will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Enjoy!
