I have combined all the classic Anzac Biscuit flavours into a bliss ball and they just might be my favourite bliss ball yet.
Bliss balls are super easy to make and last for up to two weeks in the fridge. They make the perfect sweet treat without all the extra calories of chocolate and the likes.
2 Cups Dried Pitted Dates
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Desiccated Coconut
1 Tbs Crunchy Peanut Butter
3 Tbs Treacle (or golden syrup)
Extra 1/2 cups Oats and 1/2 Cup Desiccated coconut mixed together for rolling the balls in
LET’S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
- Place the dates into the bowl of a food processor with the metal blade or a thermo style cooker and process for 30 seconds or until the dates are broken down and start to come together.
- Add the remaining ingredients and process for a further 20-30 seconds or until well combined.
- Take tablespoon sized amounts of the mix and roll into balls. Roll in the combined oats and coconut and on a plate. Continue until all the mix is rolled.
- Place into the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Makes approx 24
Note: if you have nut allergies or want to send them to school replace the peanut butter with tahini or simply omit.
Love these, about to make my 2nd batch!
Can they be frozen?
Yes they can be.
Do I need to use Peanut butter?
It can be omitted it will just change the flavour.
Is there a substitute for dates?
I long to make healthier snacks for my kids but we detest dates and they are in a lot of recipes we want to try
HI Tina, I do always lean to using dates. You can try sultanas or raisins, dried apricots as well.
Will it bind just as well with rice malt syrup or maple syrup do you think
It should do, I haven’t tried myself though.
