Clean, Simple, Delicious Cacao Bliss Balls. Lately I cannot stop making these things. Every week I whip up a new batch. Not only are these things good for your chocolate cravings, they are excellent for the children lunch boxes. In my case, my manchild.
Matthew adores these. He requests a new batch every time he notices them missing from his lunches (Yes I make his lunches every day, and yes-he’s bloody lucky). Slowly I have been perfecting my recipe to make them cleaner. I think I’ve got a winner.
They are little balls of chocolate, nutty, healthy goodness. They are quick and simple to make. Try and leave them in the fridge for more than a couple days- I dare you. They are totally moreish.
I got the initial recipe from my food bag- they send prepackaged baking for the lunches we order. The ones they had, I could not eat for they had flour in. I decided to make my own and totally eyeballed the recipe. I played around with it and I think I finally have it!
Add things in and take things out as you see fit- but heres the base recipe.
AMBER MARIE’S CACAO BLISS BALLS
Gluten Free Oats- 1 Cup
Desiccated Coconut- 1 Cup
Whole Hazelnuts- 1 Cup
Medjool Dates (fresh is preferred but you can soak dried for 15 mins in water)- 2 Cups
Raw Honey- 2TBSP
Dark chocolate chips (I sometimes put these in Matthews)-1/4 Cup
Maca Root Powder (if they are for me- it helps the girly things)- 1 TBSP
Blend all together in a food processor and roll into balls. Put into fridge to harden overnight and store in fridge for up to a week (if they last that long)
