Peanut butter bliss balls recipe
You really can experiment and add whatever you like or whatever you have in your cupboards that will mix well as a bliss ball, namely dates, dried fruits, dried cereals like oats and seeds. Experiment and create new flavours!
Here's what I used to make this scrumptious batch of ten good sized balls:
- 1x handful desiccated coconut
- 1x handful goji berries
- 1x handful pumpkin seeds
- 1 x handful raisins
- 1x tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1x heaped tablespoon of cacao powder
- 1x tablespoon of flaxseed
- 1x squirt of maple syrup (optional)
- 5x tablespoons of crunchy 100% peanut butter
For this recipe you don't even need a food processor!
Simply mix the ingredients together really well in a large bowl.
Roll into balls using the palms of your hands (they should be quite sticky)
Pop into the fridge overnight or for a few hours to set.... or eat right away if you like the stickiness!
If your mixture isn't sticky enough to roll into balls then add some more wet ingredients (peanut butter, maple syrup...)
If it's a bit too sticky then simply add some more oats or other dry ingredients. They will firm up and lose some stickiness when stored.
These are fantastic for a quick healthy energy boost or to satisfy a sweet snack craving at any time of the day. In little paper wrappers, tied in a box, they also make a wonderful homemade gift for a loved one.
