A sweet treat

Since going plant based I’ve really missed my sweet treats. I’ve got such a sweet tooth and on a bad day I had no problem munching my way through a few home made brownies!

I regularly make bliss balls with nuts and seeds, but I needed something which didn’t have the added fats.

My boys love these too, so I usually put half of them in the freezer out of sight!

This recipe is super simple and only takes around 30 minutes to blend and roll. This might seem a long time; but I usually have 2 little people around my ankles wanting my attention. Without any ankle biters around it’d only take 15 minutes max.

You can keep them in the fridge for a quick hit or freeze them to make them last longer. You can roll them in coconut like I do or use chopped nuts or chia seeds. The texture is smooth and more truffle like, which seems much more indulgent and naughty!

Bliss balls:

15 dates

3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

2-3 tbsp of peanut butter (or nut butter of choice)

1 tsp Vanilla

Method:

Mix all ingredients in food processor until it forms a ball. Roll into smaller balls. Roll in shredded coconut.

Simple!!
