Quick & Easy Bliss Balls - 2 Ways!


Do you ever find yourself needing something small but sweet to get you through your afternoon? If you're anything like me the answer is YES!

Rather than grabbing that chocolate bar or last piece of cake, make a batch of these babies and keep them on hand for when the sugar craving hits!

The great thing is they are less than 100 calories each and they are PACKED full of goodness! They're that good that you won't even know they're healthy!

Even better, get the kids involved for some school holiday fun!

Coconut Cacao Balls

1 Cup Almond Meal

2 Tbsp Desiccated Coconut + Extra For Rolling*

1 Tbsp Melted Coconut Oil

2 Tbsp Raw Cacao

1Tsp Organic Vanilla Extract

6 Medjool Dates (Pitted)

Handful Organic Raisins

Handful Organic Cranberries / Goji Berries

2 Tsp Chia Seeds

2 Tsp Cinnamon

- Makes 12 Balls

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blitz until well combined.

The mixture should resemble damp sand - if it's looking a little dry, simply add water, 1 teaspoon at a time.

Take a tablespoon of mixture and using your hands, roll into equal balls. If you like, roll them in coconut to finis or even cacao powder.

The great thing about these balls is you can add or remove anything you choose! This is a good base so feel free to have a play and see what you prefer!

Apricot Macadamia Balls

1 Cup Almond Meal

1/2 Cup Macadamia Nuts

1 Cup Desiccated Coconut + Extra For Rolling

1 Tbsp Organic Vanilla Extract

1 Tbsp Melted Coconut Oil

2 Tbsp White Chia Seeds

1 1/4 Cups Whole Dried Apricots

- Makes 20 Balls

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and mix until all nuts and apricots are finely chopped.

Again, if the mixture calls for it, add some water 1 teaspoon at a time to get to the right consistency.

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and roll in coconut to coat.

This is another recipe you can definitely have a play with! I often add grated ginger, orange and lemon zest and it gives them a real kick!

Creating healthy and delicious snacks doesn't need to be hard work! These recipes can be stored in an air-tight container and refrigerated for up to 3 weeks - if you can get them to last that long that is!

Enjoy!

Love & Light
