The perfect recipe to add to your prep day. When you’re craving something to pick you up in the afternoon, reach for a bliss ball rather than something filled with sugar. We love having a batch of these in our freezer for snacks. 


Ingredients

2 cups almond meal

2 -3 heaped tbsp raw cacao

1 1/2 cups pitted dates

1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut

 1 teaspoons vanilla essence

3 tbsp coconut oil (slightly melted if its hard)

 4-6 drops of peppermint oil

1 tsp of cinnamon myrtle or cinnamon 

Method

  1. Put all ingredients into the food processor except the almond meal and half the coconut. Blend to a sticky mixture and transfer to a large bowl. 

  2. In a mixing bowl, add the almond meal and mix in well. Place in the fridge for a minimum of half a hour. 

  3. Put the left over desiccated coconut on a plate. Roll the mixture into small to medium sized balls and cover in coconut. You can use a little warm water to wet your hands when rolling the balls.

  4. Put in the fridge or freezer depending how you like them.
