Easy Vegan Energy Balls

Sesame Caramel Easy Vegan Energy Balls

Print Recipe
The natural sugars, wholesome fats, and slow-digesting carbs in these easy vegan energy balls will give you an energy boost that LASTS! Surprisingly, the combination of sweet dates and savory tahini tastes just like salted caramel. But, no refined sugars needed! And, rolled in a coating of sesame seeds, each bite has a delightful crunch.
