i like nuts and i cannot lie

easter has come early.

why?

because this generous bunny is letting you in on the secret to stopping those 3pm energy slumps.

that’s right. i’m giving you my recipe for some very tasty nut&seed bliss balls. the perfect pick-me-up that will power you through to dinner.

bliss balls are so easy to make and the varieties are endless.

in this recipe, i’ve focused on increasing the nut&seed content to provide energy, fibre and lots of nutrients. topped off with raw cacao, a little tahini and some desiccated coconut you have a well-rounded (excuse the pun) snack.

sounds too good to be true, right?

wrong!

these taste great. they’re crunchy and chewy, which makes them seem more satiating than their size suggests and with a little hint of sweetness from dates, any sugar cravings are eliminated.

okay, i’ll quit waffling now. here it is.

nut&seed bliss balls

  • 1/3 cup raw, organic cashews
  • 1/3 activated buckinis
  • handful of pepita seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of raw cacao
  • 1 tablespoon of hulled tahini
  • 6-10 dates (pitted)
  • desiccated coconut for rolling
  • warm water (for sticking)

that’s it. stick it in a food processor and whiz it around until sticky. roll the balls in your palm and then in the coconut and hey presto, you’re done! chuck them in the fridge until firm.

this recipe makes about 10 good sized balls (hehe)
