Great for a snack in lunch boxes or on the go. These bite size balls of deliciousness are not just full of flavour, but are also gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, high in protein, fibre and antioxidants, have no added sugar (if you use sultanas), and are sooo quick and easy to prepare! What’s not to love?!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dates, pitted (see note if dried)
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup raw cacao
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp sultanas or 2 tbsp honey (or to taste)
  • ½ cup dessicated coconut for coating (optional)

Directions

  1. Put all but the ½ cup dessicated coconut for coating into the thermo cooker/food processor bowl.
  2. If using your thermo cooker, blend at sp 8 for 30 sec or if using a food processor blitz until the bliss ball mix looks moist and clings together (if not processed enough it looks quite dry)
  3. Use a spoon to grab a small amount and roll to make the bliss ball shape
  4. Optional – coat the balls in coconut. You can also use sesame seeds to coat or even leave them as they are – they still taste amazing!
  5. Store the bliss balls in an airtight container in a cool place (soft and chewy texture) or fridge (for a firmer texture). You can also freeze up a big batch.
  6. Note: if using dried dates, soak in water first until soft
