  2. Transfer to a medium sized bowl and add the sesame seeds – stirring the mixture
  3. Place the bowl in the fridge for at least an hour for the mixture to set a little
  4. Once set, take small amounts of the mixture from the bowl and roll it between your hands to make balls
  5. In a separate bowl, add the bee pollen and a little extra cocoa powder and roll the balls in this to coat them

  7. Enjoy your snacking

Notes about Bee Pollen

Bee pollen is a ball or pellet of wild field-gathered flower pollen packed by worker honeybees, and is the main natural food source for hives of bees. Bee pollen consists of simple sugars, protein, minerals, vitamins, and fatty acids.

Bonraw Mountain Bee Pollen is harvested from Sierra de Huelva in Andalucía, Spain – one of the most bio-diverse areas in the world. Bonraw sources pollen from wild rockrose, lavender, heather, oak, rosemary, and thyme plants.
