It’s hard to ignore New Zealand’s obsession with bliss balls. They’re simple to make and packed with flavour. Use a base of sweet dates and then simply add your favourite flavours which can be anything from apricots and cranberries through to a selection of different nuts or whatever you have in the pantry. These are make a great mid-afternoon treat.
- Soak the dates in boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain and place the dates into a food processor.
- Add the coconut, LSA, cocoa, peanut butter, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds and cashews. Whizz until well combined. Take a heaped tablespoon and roll into balls.
- Roll the balls in cocoa, coconut or chopped pumpkin seeds and cashews. Store in the fridge.
