Chocolate Brownie Bliss Balls

Chocolate healthy goodness!!!! I’ve always wanted to try Cocoa Nibs, so was very excited to get them and create something with them!! They are very readily available now from Aldi, Coles/Woolies and Health Food shops.

Cocoa Nibs have a crunchy texture and are full of antioxidants, magnesium and nutrients! If you don’t have them readily available, then you can substitute with nuts (i.e. almonds, hazelnuts) or seeds (i.e sunflower, pepitas).

If you want to make these gluten free, you can buy gluten free oats, or use quinoa flakes instead of the oats.

 

Add all the above ingredients into your bowl.
 
Blitz 1 minute/Speed 8.
 
 
With damp hands, use a metal teaspoon to measure out the crumb-like texture, squeeze the mixture in your hand and shape into a ball.
 
 
Place in fridge (or freezer) to set.

Notes

- Medjool dates differ in dryness, so you may need to add 5 - 10 grams more coconut oil/1-2 extra dates if the mixture comes out dry, or add 5 - 10 grams more 'dry' ingredients (oats, cocoa nibs) if the mixture comes out too sticky to shape into the balls. - You can use pitted dates instead of Medjool dates (they are not as sweet as Medjool so add about 20 grams honey with it)

Golden Gaytime Bliss Balls

This is a variation of the Healthy Golden Gaytime Easter Eggs. This time using blitzed up dark chocolate to roll them in for a little chocolate hit! You can use cocoa/cacoa powder or drinking chocolate to roll them in instead, however I like the blitzed chocolate for some texture!

This is most definitely the BEST bliss ball I’ve ever eaten – I ate a few before it even hit the fridge!! #nomnomnom

Ferrero Rocher Bliss Balls

Believe it or not, but these are the first ever bliss balls I’ve ever made! My husband is getting back into the gym and body building now that the boys are a bit older, and wanted some healthy protein packed snacks! He also is a sucker for Ferrero Rocher Chocolates, so I thought I would make him a healthier version!

Note: Medjool dates differ in dryness, so you may need to add 5 – 10 grams more coconut oil if the mixture comes out dry, or add 5 – 10 grams more ‘dry’ ingredients (oats, LSA, chia seeds) if the mixture comes out too sticky to shape into the balls.

Add all ingredients into your bowl
Blitz until desired consistency (I prefer it with some chunky hazelnut bits)
Use a metal tablespoon to measure out mixture
Squeeze the mixture together with damp hands
..and shape into a ball!
Enjoy these guilt free Ferrero Rocher Bliss Balls!
