Spearmint Pistachio Chocolate Rolls
1/3 cup organic tahini
1/3 cup raw honey
6 drops spearmint essential oil
¼ cup raw pistachio nuts, chopped fine
½ cup raw cacao powder
1/3 cup desiccated coconut*
¼ cup fine rice bran
*Extra desiccated coconut, for rolling
(10 -15 rolls take roughly 10 minutes to make)
Mix honey and tahini together. Add all other ingredients and combine until dough-like in texture.
Sprinkle a large board with coconut. Take half the mixture and roll on coconut until it looks like a long snake. Cut into logs.
Repeat process with other half and refrigerate to harden.
If you don't have or like spearmint, use peppermint instead. If preferred, you can also roll them into balls, or if you don't have any time at all, simply scrape into a lined dish and set as a slice! Done!
Note: Try adding 1/8 cup maca powder in place of some raw cacao to boost your superfood intake!
