Chocolate Tahini Hearts

Choc Tahini Hearts - high protein, vegan, gluten free

1/4 cup sprouted brown rice protein powder*
1/4 cup unhulled tahini
1 tbsp coconut nectar
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp unhulled sesame seeds

Mix ingredients in a bowl until it forms sticky dough. Sprinkle some sesame seeds in bottom of moulds. Press dough into moulds (I used 6 silicon heart shaped ones) - can even use icecube trays for small snacks. Place in freezer.

4 tbsp cacao butter (I used buttons)
1 tbsp cacao powder
2 tsp carob powder (optional, can use more cacao)
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tbsp coconut oil

Using a double boiler (boiling water in saucepan and bowl placed on top of water) place all ingredients in bowl and (medium heat) stir til melted.
Get moulds out of freezer and carefully spoon liquid chocolate into moulds. Set in freezer for another 15-30minutes. Store in fridge or freezer or eat straight away! I enjoyed mine with a cup of vanilla chai. Delicious.
*provides approx 24g protein therefore each heart could contain approx 4g protein. Pretty good for a choccie snack.
