I absolutely love eating and making bliss balls. The flavour combinations are endless. I have made Date, Sultana & Oat Bliss Balls, Date and Apple Bliss Balls and Date, Orange and Chia Bliss Balls. They are my 3pm sugar craving saviour and are prefect for the lunchbox as they are nut free and refined sugar free.
The addition of the banana chips give these bliss balls lovely crunchy sections as you bite through the soft chocolate date outside.
500gm Dried Pitted Dates
1 Cup Crunchy Banana Chips
2 Tbs Warm Water
1/4 Cup Cocoa
Desiccated coconut, for rolling
LET’S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
1. Place the banana chips into the bowl of a food processor (or thermo style cooker) with the metal blade and process until broken down into smaller pieces.
2. Add the remaining ingredients except the coconut and process until it is all broken down and starts to come together.
3. Take tablespoon sized amounts of the mixture and roll into a ball and then roll in the coconut and place in the container that you will store them in when in the fridge. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
Makes approximately 24 bliss balls
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
