These are a weekly staple in our house and part of my Sunday weekly food prep as discussed here https://fitmumblog.com/2014/10/07/food-prep-for-a-healthy-week/
If you wish, you can add your favourite protein to them if you want Choc Nut Protein Bliss Balls. This photo is half Cacao & Nut Bliss Balls and half of my Apricot Bliss Balls.
Cacao & Nut Bliss Balls (makes approx. 24)
3/4 cup almonds (dry roasted)
3/4 cup walnuts
30 Pitted Dates
1/2 cup diced apricots
1/4 cup cranberries
2 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tbsp Rice Malt Syrup (can substitute Honey or Argave Nectar)
Combine all ingredients in food processor until combined (roughly chopped nuts for a chunkier texture or blitz them for a smoother texture… personal taste)
Roll in mix of chia seeds and desiccated coconut.
Chill in fridge for approx. 1 hour (or freeze).
We usually store half in an air tight container in the fridge and the other half in a zip lock bag in the freezer.
