Savory (and just a little bit sweet) Miso Tahini Oat Balls

Miso Tahini Oat Balls- Super Strength Health 2

It’s been awhile since I brought you a recipe! I started Vegan MoFo off with a crop of recipes I’d been saving for a rainy day, but as the month wore on, I got a lot more excited about the mental nutrition I had going on (probably didn’t help that sickness made me lose my sense of taste for awhile there.) I’m feeling much much better today, and after like a million days of rest, and I woke up with one thing on my mind: food. Positive body image theory totally rules, but sometimes you just want to eat.

I have been obsessed with the flavor combo of miso and tahini for quite some time now, and believe it or not, this recipe is largely inspired by a salad dressing that is in the upcoming cookbook I worked on with my friend, Melissa.

While these oat balls baked, they filled my house with the most delectable smell. They are savory, hearty, a bit rich, and have a tiny touch of both sweet and spicyness to them. They are perfect for a pre-workout snack, or a few would be a sufficient breakfast on the go.
