pistachio sesame seed energy balls

i am always looking for healthy alternatives for my chocolate cravings...maybe those are only cravings for sweets...that would make my life far easier as those cravings could be satisfied with healthy snacks. balls are just perfect for this purpose...they are packed with a lot of good stuff like seeds, nuts and natural sugar...and they are really delicious.

i wasn't sure how this energy balls would work for others, so i covered a few with chocolate to make them more suitable for friends who might not be into the healthy alternative of chocolate...the funny thing was...they were more into the pure energy bites than into the chocolaty ones. a surprise...!!!

pistachios, sesame seeds and dates are such a great combination, which are really worth a try.

so here is the recipe

this is what you need

- 1/2 cup almond butter

- 1/2 cup pistachios

fancy repurposed fringe curtain handbags

fringe curtains...they are now available for little money and you don't even have to attach them to your window....they can be easily repurposed into fancy purses.

this is really fun and the result fantastic.
the purses are more evening or party handbags, than shooping totes...but...there are a lot of handy handbags out there and special occasions deserve special purses. can pimp them with elegant beaded handbag frame.

...or with a fancy flower brooch

if it comes to variations...the limit is the sky...and i am pretty much sure to try a few in the near future.

thank you very regards...silke
