Units Scale
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups tahini (nut butter)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup Shredded coconut for coating


  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the shredded coconut in a LARGE bowl.
  2. Mix by hand until all is well incorporated and combined and it sticks and holds together in a ball.
  3. Refrigerate until cold before you start to shape them.
  4. Use a dessert spoon, or 12.5 ml scoop and form balls (you can do bigger balls if you prefer) and once done roll in coconut. 
  5. I measured the first 12 or so and then continued by eyeballing them for size.
  6. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking tray.  Drop the shredded coconut on the parchment paper.
  7. Form the balls and lightly drop on the coconut and when you have about 12 or so, roll and cover them in the coconut.
  8. Continue until all is done.
  9. If you have any coconut left, move the balls around in the coconut and do your best to get as much of it on the balls.
  10. Leave it on the tray in the fridge to set and then store it in an airtight container in the fridge or if needed you can also freeze it.

  1. This is what I need! Something sweet but still nutritious! I do find it hard to find vegan chocolate chips though. Sometimes the dark, but most still contain milk.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe at the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop 90z. Your post is featured at the next blog hop!


    • Hi Laurie – WOW, what an honor and thank you so much for the feature. You will be able to find the vegan chips on Amazon as per the link on this post. Hope that will help. I will be popping over to Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop for sure, but thanks in advance.

    • I first tasted this on a trip earlier this year and then the shop owner graciously gave me the recipe and I adapted it to this one and I enjoyed it a lot. Hope you will try it out.

  2. Pinned this post Esme. Always looking for delicious vegan snacks and appreciate you sharing this recipe at InLinkz 279 Senior Salon Pit Stop and happy fall. My posts this week are #98 through 102. Enjoy this beautiful day and be well. Warm regards, Nancy Andres @ Colors 4 Health

  3. Curious why the tahini instead of just peanut butter?
    And would any dried fruit work for this? E.g. dates, apricots, or do you think the flavour combo works particularly well with raisins and cranberries?

    • Pritu. Good question why Tahini. I had a pot in the pantry and wanted to use what I had. Add for the fruit I am sure you can test others although I have only used this combo and I love it. Let me know how you adapt it and how it turned out. Enjoy
