‘Absolute bliss’, that’s the best description we’ve heard of Donna Hay’s delectable date and almond bliss balls. Make a few of these yummy treats and freeze them for when those 3pm munchies pop up or friends pop round unexpectedly.
What you’ll need:
24 fresh dates, pitted
½ cup (80g) almonds
1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
Pinch of sea salt flakes
¼ cup (20g) LSA
¼ cup (20g) desiccated coconut
How to prepare:
- Place the dates, almonds, rice malt syrup, oil, cacao and salt in a food processor. Process for 2–3 minutes or until the nuts are finely chopped and the mixture comes together.
- Roll 2 teaspoons of the mixture into balls.
- Roll half the balls in LSA and the other half in the desiccated coconut. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes 22.
