chocolate bliss balls

Bliss balls are such a good sweet treat! They’re really easy to make and will last in your freezer for weeks, so you can have them ready to go when you need an energy hit.

These nut butter balls are heavenly, and packed full of protein, magnesium and healthy fats - to keep you feeling full for longer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 handful raw almonds
  • 2 tbsp LSA mix or flaxseed meal
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • a generous pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup water

Cacao-Nut Butter Drizzle:

  • 2 tsp almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder

Method:

  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and process until mixture comes together (the consistency should be sticky, but you should still be able to see tiny chunks of almonds)
  2. Roll the mixture into balls and add to a lined container
  3. To make drizzle, add the almond butter, maple syrup, cacao powder and water to a bowl and stir to combine
  4. Drizzle over bliss balls
  5. Place bliss balls into the fridge or freezer for 20 minutes to set

Notes: Store in the fridge for up to a week, or freezer for a fortnight Need some extra protein? Add a serving (25g) of chocolate protein powder before blending!
