The answer to a bad week? “Bliss” balls.

Ingredients:
450g medjool dates, pits removed (you could substitute for dried dates as well)
6 tbsp raw cacao powder
5 tbsp dessicated coconut, plus extra for rolling
3 tbsp black chia seeds
3 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp sesame seeds, for rolling

Method:Β 

  1. Combine the dates, cacoa powder, coconut, chia seeds and tahini in a food processor until well mixed.
  2. Add water to create a smooth mixture. If not wet enough to roll, add more water until the mixture is the desired consistency.
  3. Combine extra dessicated coconut and sesame seeds in a bowl.
  4. Roll the mixture into small balls. Toss in coconut and sesame seeds.
  5. Refrigerate or freeze.

 

Note – this recipe makes approximately 40 small bliss balls.
