Shop IngredientsHow this works
- 3/4 cup sesame seeds (black or white), plus 2 teaspoons for sprinkling on top
- 1/3 cup tahini
- 1 1/2 cup unsweetened dates, pitted (around 8oz without pits)
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (use gluten-free if desired)
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons water
- A pinch salt
- Pretzel sticks (regular or gluten-free
- Goji berries
- Pumpkin seeds
- Plain Os cereal
- Combine all of the ingredients (except for the extra sesame seeds) in a food processor. Pulse until the dates and oats become uniformly chopped and all of the other ingredients are blended. The mixture should start to pull away from the sides of the food processor and collect towards the center. Try pinching it, and if it remains too crumbly to press into a dough, add an extra tablespoon of water at a time and continue to blend until the mixture comes together.
- Simply work with the “dough” right from the food processor. You can either roll it out and cut shapes out of it or form it into 3D shapes with your hands as if your modeling clay.
- You do not need to chill the dough before working with it, but you can chill the finished creations if you want to make them even sturdier.
- If you are going to roll the dough out, we suggest making a flat disk of it, placing it on a piece of parchment paper, and then placing another piece of parchment on top of it. This makes for easier rolling and prevents it from sticking to your work surface or rolling pin.
- Pretzel sticks (regular or gluten-free): arms or legs
- Goji berries: fangs or eyes
- Pumpkin seeds: fangs or eyes
- Plain Os cereal: eyes
- Coconut: hair
