We all know the feeling – sweet cravings that can sometimes become so present that we can’t think about anything else.
A recipe that I give to every sweet tooth are my Chocolate Bliss Balls.
Bliss Balls are a healthy and filling snack in between. They satisfy the sweet appetite, are a good source of fats from the nuts and proteins and from the chia seeds. They are made quickly and what’s more is you can make them in batches and even keep them in the fridge for weeks.
What do you need:
– A food processor or mixer
– A freezer
Preparation time: approx. 10 minutes
Ingredients for 12 balls:
- 200g dates
- 50g chia seeds
- 50g hemp seed
- 100g almonds
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon of almond butter
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Put the nuts in a mixer and chop them small. Add the dates, chia seed, hemp seed and coconut oil and mix well, then add the almond butter and cocoa and mix for about 2 minutes until a thick mass forms. If necessary, you can add a little more water to the mixture.
Roll the dough into small balls, the balls can be the size of a golf ball.
Optionally you can roll some balls through cocoa powder, others through grated coconut or thinly chopped nuts, for example.
