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.

- 1/2 cup almond butter
