Aren't bliss balls just so tasty and...blissful?
These chocolate peanut butter bliss balls are the most delicious pick-me-up treat. Made with a combination of nutritious nuts, seeds, coconut, and naturally sweetened with juicy sultanas and medjool dates, they will satisfy any sweet tooth, while still providing nourishment. Each little ball is a nutrient-dense blend of protein, healthy fats and belly-loving fibre, and offer a concentrated source of energy to the body - stick to 1-2 balls as a serving.
One of the best things about these is that they're really easy to make! You just throw everything into a food processor, push the on-button, and let the machine do the hard work. Within a little time the mixture will begin to form a dough, which can then be rolled into tasty little balls.
These would be a nice lunchbox treat for the kids (given they don't attend a nut-free school), as an energy booster before a gym session or as an afternoon snack at work.
