Bliss balls are a delicious treat and they're great for a quick energy pick-me-up when you're on-the-go or you're spending the day out in nature. 

Like all sweet treats, these bliss balls are best enjoyed in moderation. While naturally sweetened it's important to know how much sugar you should be consuming to feel your best. You can learn more about the difference between refined and natural sugars in my blog, '6 tips for reducing sugar easily and gently'.  

BePure Bliss Balls

A post shared by Ben Warren (@bepurebenwarren) on


Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. cacao or cocoa (cacao is just unroasted cocoa – so it contains more antioxidants)

  • 2 cups desiccated coconut

  • 3 Tbsp. peanut butter 

  • 3/4 cups dried fruit eg. Sultanas, apricots, dates, figs etc.
  • 
½ cup nuts and seeds eg. Almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts etc.

  • 1-2 Tbsp. coconut oil

  • 1 Tbsp. raw honey or 100% real maple syrup


Directions

  1. Place all ingredients except the honey/maple syrup in a food processor and blend until it forms clumps (add more coconut oil if the mixture is too dry).
  2. Continue blending and slowly pour in the honey/maple syrup. The mixture will be slightly sticky.
  3. Roll into snack sized balls and refrigerate.
  4. The bliss balls are ready to eat straight away, but will firm up more in the fridge.
