Here is a Chocolate Fix Fuelled With Energy that you can try to make for Christmas, courtesy of Lady Wimbledon https://ladywimbledon.com/2017/12/3-healthy-christmas-treats/
To make these energising Bliss Balls, you’ll need….
- 50g Almonds, whole or ground
- 50g Cashews, whole
- 100g pitted dried Dates (can use mixture of dates and dried figs)
- 30g raw Cacao
- 30g Chia seeds
- 60g Oats
- 85g Coconut Oil
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- Desiccated coconut – toasted for coating (optional)
If using whole almonds and cashews, start by blending them in a food processor to a course texture. Then add the dates along with all the other ingredients and pulse until well combined and finely blended. Start with 3 tbsp. coconut oil and if the mixture is still crumbly and difficult to form into a ball after combining, use a little more. I usually have to scrape down the sides of the blender a couple of times to ensure a good consistency.
They are now ready to roll into small balls. Put the toasted coconut onto a small plate and roll each ball around until fully coated.
Refrigerate for a firmer texture for an hour before serving.
