Recipe : Bliss Balls

These really are one of the best things out there. Easy to make, good for you and kids LOVE them (they think they are chocolate balls).

You need just 5 simple ingredients.

Make sure you get FRESH dates. I buy them at a fruit shop but I know Coles and Woolies have them too.

Don’t forget to pit the dates. ie. remove the seeds. Amy forgot once, the result of which was a very sick food processor.

Add remaining ingredients.

And whizz. If you don’t have the greatest food processor I’d recommend doing the nuts first, then adding everything else. Alternatively you could buy almond meal (preground almonds) – though it’ll be more expensive.

It’s done when the mixture clumps together.

Then you just roll into balls. Kids often like to do this part.

Then roll in coconut.

You can eat them soft if you like but I like them best once they harden up in the fridge.

    I love these Libby, they are my favourite. We have been going through over a kilo of dates a week not all in the bliss balls but I eat them for breakfast too lol
