  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Method

  1. In a food processor, pulse the oats and pecans until it becomes a fine, almost a flour-like consistency.
  2. Then add the salt, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, tahini, honey, and Dijon mustard. Pulse until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon scoop out the mixture and shape into a ball. (Shape into a ball vs. rolling or the mixture will crumble.) Repeat with the remaining mixture.
