Peanut & Cacao Bliss Balls

Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 12 balls

Ingredients

  • 12 medjool dates (pitted)
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter (my favourite brands are Pics Peanut Butter & Mayvers)
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • ½ cup desiccated or shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (room temp melted)
  • 1 pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  • Soak the dates in a bowl of water and then add all other ingredients into a food processor/blender.
  • Once all other ingredients are added remove the stones from the dates and add to the food processor. Placing the dates in water for a few minutes helps to soften them.
  • Blend all ingredients until a good fine consistency.
  • Using a tablespoon, remove 1 heaped tablespoon of mixture and place in hands and roll into a ball. Repeat this process until all of the mixture is used. This will make approximately 12 balls.
  • Roll balls in coconut, nuts, cacao or leave as they are.
  • Place into the freezer for approx 30 minutes and then store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Enjoy x

Tips

I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for ¾ of a standard size mug.
