Date & Cacao Bliss Balls

DATE & CACAO BLISS BALLS

Ingredients:

2 cups raw cashews soaked in water for 2-3 hours, then drained

1 cup medjool dates

1/2 cup cacao powder

2 tbsp rice malt syrup

2/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats

Desiccated coconut, cocoa nibs, maca powder to coat

Instructions:

  1. Place cashews in your food processor and blend until creamy.
  2. Add oats and blend them so the oats break up a little.
  3. Add in the rest of the bliss ball ingredients and process until you get a crumbly, evenly combined mixture.
  4. Pinch test your mixture and see if it sticks together. If it is too dry, you can add a few tablespoons of water. If it’s too wet, add a touch more cacao powder.
  5. Scoop heaped tablespoons of the mixture out and roll in to balls (tip: it’s easier if you wet your hands just slightly; the mixture won’t stick to you as much then!)
  6. Cover your balls in coatings of choice. Store in the fridge for a few weeks or freeze for 1-2 months for a longer life.

Makes approx. 20 small bliss balls
