Superfood Bliss Balls…

This is one of my fave mixes to play around with for a healthy snack, to satisfy a sweet, craving or breakie on-the-go or for no other reason than you love them!
This is a blend of recipes from Elaina Love + a Bali Mag I picked up in my travels …

You will need:
1 cup of dates pitted + chopped + 1 cup of raisins
1/4 cup of dried figs chopped
2 cups of sunflower seeds
2 cups of pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup of sesame seeds
1/2 cup of flax seeds soaked OR use pre-grounded mix of your choice
2 tbs chia seeds to make chia gel
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/2-3/4 cup of cacao nibs
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup of goji berries
1/4-1/2 cup of Loving Earth Caramelized Buckinis

  • Pour the Chia into a glass jar with lid + add 6tbs of water to cover + shake well.
  • Soak the fruit for 15 mins in enough water to cover
  • Blend the seeds into a chunky batter + add the chia, flax seeds + salt + pulse.
  • Add the cacao powder a little at a time pulsing until it blends in.
  • Pop into a large bowl + strain the fruit + pop into the blender until its a paste.
  • Add the fruit paste to the seeds + mix until it’s combined
  • Add cacao nibs, coconut, goji berries + buckinis.
  • Mix and press into either a slice tray or roll into balls + dust with cacao.
  • Freeze to set….

Variations:

  • I use what I have in the pantry
  • Substitute¬† seeds with your fave nuts just soak them for few hours to activate them.
  • I use alot of almonds + macadamias to support Australian growers….
  • I will add berries to replace one of the fruits…
  • Add tahini or honey instead of dates
  • Add hemp seeds or whatever superfood you are loving at the time
  • Add melted coconut oil if too dry
  • Add your green superfood powder

Top with:

  • Shredded coconut + grated orange
  • Make a ganache with melted cacao, coconut sugar + coco oil
  • Dip the frozen balls into the mix + back into the freezer to harden
  • Dip the balls into the ganache + sprinkle with walnuts or hazelnuts

Do soak your nuts for a few nights to activate them + to help with digestion
Use or organic where possible but don’t stress if you can’t
And enjoy!

Blessings
