Makes 25 bliss balls
4 dates (if using fresh remove the seeds)
1⁄2 apple (skin on, core removed)
1⁄2 cup almond, cashews or any combination of nuts
1⁄4 cup sunflower, pumpkin seeds or any combination of seeds
1⁄2 cup coconut (shredded or desiccated) (save 1⁄4 cup aside for rolling) 1 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1 tbs cacao (avoid cocoa if possible as less nutritious than cacao)
• Variation – swap any of the dried fruit or nuts for your preference of variety. Mixture needs to be a sticky consistency but not too soft. Add additional coconut if a little too moist to roll
1. Blend all together in a food processor, until smooth, saving some coconut to roll the mix in.
2. Use a tablespoon of mixture and shape into small balls, rolling in coconut
Store in an air tight container in fridge. Remember moderation – although these are nutritious and delicious, eat only 1-2 bliss balls at a time for snack.
