This recipe for Bliss Balls is just a base for whatever extra goodies you would like to add. Over the Christmas break I made a batch with peppermint oil and I also made a batch using up leftover Turkish Delight.
10 pitted dates
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup hazelnut meal
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon coconut of your choice (I prefer desiccated for this recipe)
1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil and rice malt syrup
1 dessert spoon cacao powder
In a Thermomix or food processor blitz the dates finely
Add almond and hazelnut meal, sunflower seeds and coconut and blitz again for about 10 seconds
Add remaining ingredients and blitz until all ingredients come together (about 10 seconds depending on speed)
** If adding extra flavours, now is the time to do so.
Chill in refrigerator for about 5 minutes
Remove from refrigerator and using your hands rolls into bite size balls
**You may want to roll in extra cacao or coconut for added flavour
