Bliss balls

Wed Jul 24, 2013 5:53 pm

Has anyone got any recipes to share?

Last night I did dates, cranberries, almonds, activite and homemade Nutella, then rolled in coconut. They were nice but not sensational.

I saw this posted on the food for thought group I am in on FB with good reviews.

A friend of mine came over for morning tea this week and she brought apricot balls (made with coconut, oats and coconut whizzed up).

I made them with just dates and coconut. You have to process it for ages until the coconut turns more to butter.

Wow two ingredients! I'll give them a go :)

Would you give them to a 10mo?

Maybe not with coconut on the outside as it is easy to inhale and make them cough.

Oh yum! I'm definitely trying both the coconut and date balls AND the apricot balls. Nom nom nom!

My basic recipe is:
1/4 C rolled oats
1/4 C almonds or another nut
1/2 C dried pitted dates (make sure there's no pits hiding in there)
1 Tbs cocoa powder
tiny pinch of salt
couple of drops of vanilla extract

Blend dry ingrendients until they are fine, then add dates and vanilla and blend until it sticks together. If it's not sticky enough you can add a little liquid - I have used coconut oil, maple syrup, peanut butter, or (just a little bit of) water to help it along.

Then you can roll in balls or press into a dish and chill, then cut into squares.


Another really yummy one is blend equal parts fresh medjool dates and pine nuts OR macadamia nuts, roll into little tiny balls & press a goji berry into the top of each ball for presentation. Then freeze them - these ones taste amazing out of the freezer. like caramels, or something, so good.

^^^ Yum, both those sound awesome. Frozen date and macadamia balls sound like an awesome idea for summer.
