I’m loving all the Christmas themed food things popping up everywhere at the moment, for me, i’m planning on having a wholefood Christmas filled with lots of lovely veggies and raw snacks! The tricky part is choosing the right kind of treats, which is why I have come up with my own bliss balls. Everybody has their own version, and mine are a lovely orange and cinnamon flavour.
1 cup Dates chopped
1 cup Cashews
2 Tbsp Cacao powder
1/4 cup Coconut oil
1/2 cup Walnuts
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
rind from one orange
Dessicated coconut and chia seeds for outside
Place dates and cashews in a food processor and blend until combined and cashews are finely chopped (Should all stick together in a ball). Put the dates and cashew mix into a bowl, then processed walnuts until very fine. Melt coconut oil in microwave for 30 seconds, then add all ingredients into the bowl with the date and cashew mix.
Roll into balls and place on a lined baking tray in the fridge or freezer for 30 minutes, or until set. I also rolled mine in desiccated coconut and chia seeds.
*Variations: ginger and lemon, cranberry and almond, vanilla and cherry, rum and raisin
