I hope you’ve all enjoyed your weekends and spent it doing the things you love. Don’t you sometimes get to Monday and think, “Do I have to go to work?” but of course you go, but when 3pm rolls around you’re feeling lethargic, a little sorry for yourself maybe tired and you want a pick me up without the consequence of it effecting your pant size. I’ve got my own recipe of bliss balls that provide you with the energy and taste to get you through the blues on a Monday afternoon when energy levels generally start taking a plummet.
I really love bliss balls, especially ones that I make myself, because I know what’s in them AND they’re a great clean treat that’s not going to have you regretting your choices. This bliss balls are made with nuts, I apologize if you have any allergies to nuts, but I figured I should disclose this information to you before you get to the recipe. However, the nuts can be replaced with anything really 😊
Prep t: 10-15mins | Cook t: N/A | Makes: Approximately 24 bliss balls* (dependent on size)
1C pitted dates Soaked in boiling water for 15 minutes, then drained.
½ C Raw Mixed Nuts I use brazil nuts and walnuts
½ C Almond Meal
2 tsp Cacao Powder
½ tsp Himalayan salt
Shredded/ Desiccated Coconut to garnish
Add the nuts and dates to a food processor (or blender if you don’t have a food processor like myself) and mix until coarsely mixed through, then add the Himalayan salt. Take out and mix thoroughly in a bowl, adding in the cacao powder and almond meal. At this stage, the mix should start sticking together. The stickiness is dependent on how many dates you have in the mix, so if you find that the mix isn’t sticking together or holding shape enough, mix through processor again with added dates. Using a tablespoon, scoop a tablespoon worth out of the mix and roll together into balls, you should have approximately 24 bliss balls, this will vary on how much you heap the tablespoon of course 😊 Then roll them through the shredded coconut, and serve ❤
I hope you enjoy them, if you have any other tips or favourite ingredients you like in your bliss balls, or would like me to post another bliss ball recipe, comment below.
