These simple to make love bites are as nourishing as they are delicious. They make a great afternoon pick me up or after dinner treat.
2 Cups of pitted dates
1 Cup of pistachios
1/2 Cup sesame seeds
Soak the dates for three minutes in a bowl of warm water. While the dates are soaking toss the pistachios in the food processor. Pulse several times until the nuts are in small pieces but not completely pulverized. Remove the nuts from the food processor. Pour off the water from the dates. Place the dates into the processor and puree until you have a paste like consistency. Remove dates from the processor and place into a medium bowl. Mix in the pistachio pieces into the date paste with your hands. Pour the sesame seeds into a small dish. Roll the date pistachio mixture into small balls in the palm of your hand. Roll the balls in the seeds until covered.
