Nutritional content per serve
Energy: 187 calories | Protein: 4g | Total fat: 14g | Carbohydrate: 14g | Sugar: 9g | Fibre: 3g | Yields: 16-20 bliss balls | Total time: 15 mins
*Approx. values using Xyris Foodworks Software per serve
- ½ cup walnuts
- ½ cup medjool dates, pitted
- ¼ cup dark choc chips*
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- ½ cup almond butter
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup whole almonds
- 1 cup shredded coconut for rolling
- Place walnuts in food processor and mix for 30 seconds or until coarsely chopped.
- Add in dates, and pulse until well mixed with the nuts, then add chocolate chips and pulse 5 times to break down the mixture.
- Add maple syrup, almond butter, vanilla extract, oatmeal and salt. Process until smooth, thick and well combined. You may have to scrape down the sides several times before mixture is well combined because it’ll be thick. If the mixture is too wet, add the additional ¼ cup oatmeal.
- Stream almonds while mixing, and process for about 1 minute or until they’re in small chunks.
- Using your hands, form the mixture into golf ball sized balls. Your hands will feel ‘oily’ as you do this because the oils have broken down from the nuts during processing, however, the bliss bites won’t be oily.
- Roll balls in coconut. (You can also eat them without rolling in the coconut)
- Put in a sealed container and store in freezer.
- You can find sugar-free dark choc alternatives such as the Noshu brand in supermarkets or you can try cacao nibs as an alternative to choc chips.
