Bliss Balls – the perfect pre- and post-yoga snack



 

Bliss Balls

Super easy to make, free of refined sugar, and full of minerals and nutrients, these Bliss Balls are a really handy snack to have on hand.

 

12 pitted medjool dates (tip: if you can’t get medjool, then just get the regular Camel brand dates in the dry fruits aisle, and soak them in water.  you’ll need probably twice as much though)

2C walnuts (tip: if you don’t have enough walnuts just top it up with almonds, brazil nuts, cashews etc)

1C desiccated coconut

1/2C sunflower seeds (again, if you don’t have enough, then pumpkin seeds can be used to top it up too)

1/3C raw cacao powder (not cocoa powder, two quite different things!)

pinch of salt

dash of water

For added flavour: 1-2 drops of dōterra essential oil.  Our favourites include: peppermint (for an after dinner mint taste), wild orange (mmmmm, jaffas!), or lemon (different, but it totally works!)

For rolling: desiccated coconut, freeze dried raspberry powder, cacao nibs.

 

Place the dry ingredients into a blender, and waz it up.  [Waz is my own word.  Basically just blend the crap out of those dry ingredients].

Then add the dates, water, salt and essential oil (if using), and waz again.

Roll into small balls (about a heaped tablespoons worth), and roll in coating if desired.

Store in a glass jar in the freezer or fridge.
