So, we’ve joined the bliss ball club. It’s pretty awesome.
We definitely love our snacks, I mean who doesn’t? The idea that some people go hours and hours between each meal without a nibble or a graze just baffles us. Snacks provide your body with energy to continuously burn, allowing your metabolism to remain active and alert. They stabilise your blood sugar levels and prevent that 3 pm mind fog. Adding protein to your snacks and some healthy fats also keeps you sustained throughout the day, preventing over-eating at meal times.
We joined the snack club years ago, but we are only recent members of the bliss ball club.
You should join the club too.
1 cup of dates (pitted)
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
1 tbsp of cacao (or more if you’re a choccie fan!)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
A pinch of himalayan salt
1 tbsp of chia seeds or flax seeds
2-3 tbsp of coconut oil
**If you’re a protein powder kinda gal/guy, feel free to add a scoop to give these babies an added protein punch. We personally don’t use protein powder but if you do, try adding it in and let us know how it goes!
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend till the desired consistency. You may need to add some water as you want the mixture to stick well together.
Once blended, roll into balls and coat with more coconut or more cacao! Pop in the fridge to let them set a bit. We usually leave them in the fridge over night before grabbing one to munch on.
So delicious as a mid morning snack, 3 pm pick-me-up or an after dinner treat. Go on, jump on the bliss ball bandwagon and give them a go!
