Mocha Bliss Balls {oil, refined sugar & grain free}

Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Now that I'm in my final semester of university and dissertation writing is underway, study snacks are an absolute necessity because I always reach a point in the essay writing process when only a cup of tea and a sweet treat can persuade me to carry on. But, as always, I like to think about what's inside my sweet treats to make sure they're actually fuelling me rather than just providing a quick sugar rush. I've found bliss balls to be the perfect study session pick me ups because they're easy to grab, made of whole foods and taste great! Whether you're in need of a study snack or a treat to take to work, these mocha bliss balls are a great recipe to add to your meal prep list so they're ready to grab throughout the week, as and when you need them.

To make 12 - 15 balls you will need:
- 100g Almond Meal
- 7 Medjool Dates
- 2 Teaspoons Cacao Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Coffee
- 2 Teaspoons Date Syrup
- 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
- Desiccated Coconut & Date Syrup to decorate (optional)

Simply add all of your ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender and blend until combined.

Once combined your mixture will resemble a bread crumb like texture, then you're ready to roll the bliss balls.

Grab a small handful of mixture at a time, press together firmly and roll into a ball shape then place to one side.

Once all of the balls have been rolled, place into the fridge to set for a few hours.

After the balls have set, it's time to decorate. I dipped the top of each ball in a little date syrup and then sprinkled with desiccated coconut, but finely chopped nuts or a dusting of cacao powder would work too!

Then, you're ready to eat, simply store your bliss balls in an airtight container in the fridge and grab a ball or two when you're in need of an afternoon pick me up or sweet treat to go with a cuppa.
