Chocolate bliss balls

These are a staple in my house. There are few occasions when I dont have some ready made bliss balls in the fridge or freezer, they make a yummy one handed snack and are an easy addition to my husbands lunch box, and the best part is- they are incredibly easy to make.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup of mixed nuts or seeds, almonds, walnuts, Brazil nuts, pepitas, sunflower seeds etc
  • 1/2 cup of no added sugar organic dried/ dedicated coconut
  • 2 Tbsp of raw cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp of mesquite powder (optional but highly recommend)
  • 1 Tbsp of raw cacoa nibs (optional but highly recommended)
  • 4 – 5 large medjool (freshl dates
  • 1 Tbsp of water

METHOD:

  1. Add all ingredients except the dates and water to you food processor. Blend on high for around 30 seconds.
  2. Add medjool dates, blitz for another 30 seconds – one minute, until the mixture is fine and holding together.
  3. Test the mixture by rolling some in a ball, if it isn’t holding together add 1 Tbsp of water and blend to combine.
  4. Roll into balls, I usually get around 10. But feel free to make them bigger or smaller.
  5. You can choose to leave them as they are, or roll them in a variety of coatings. Coconut, cacao nibs, cacao powder, goji berries, seeds, what ever tickles your fancy!
  6. Keep them stored in the fridge or double the batch and put some in a zip lock bag in the freezer.
