Mint, cacao and cinnamon myrtle bliss balls
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.
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
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.
In a mixing bowl, add the almond meal and mix in well. Place in the fridge for a minimum of half a hour.
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.
Put in the fridge or freezer depending how you like them.
