Raise your hand if you’re a tahini lover! Yes, no? Either way, you can easily costumize the amount of tahini or simply switch it out for any nut butter of choice. Heck yeah to costumizable recipes!

Anyway, I found these a perfect snack to bring to school. Especially considering that my school is a nut free zone, for everyone’s safety and wellbeing. These bad boys are perfect when you need something slightly more heary to provide you power and brainfuel. Not onyl that but hella scroumptious too. I need to make more versions of these, like PB and rasberry, banana and chocolate, the possibilities are endless. What flavour combo would you like or have tried? Do let me know!

Enjoy my peps!
