There are so many bliss, energy, and health ball recipes online, you’d think I would have found the perfect one for me. Well I didn’t, so I made my own. I thought about the ingredients I wanted to include and then went for it. I wanted to make a tasty snack packed full of fibre and this is the result…
3/4 cup of quick oats
1/2 cup black chia seeds
1/2 cup psyllium husk
1/ 4 cup cacao powder
340g pitted prunes
1/2 cup raisins
2 Tbs of coconut (optional)
In a food processor blend the oats, cacao powder, psyllium and chia seeds until it is a coarse powder. Remove from food processor and put into a bowl.
Add the raisins and prunes to the food processor and mix until well chopped. Add dry ingredients back into the blender and mix well.
Should end up with a very firm dough. Roll into balls and coat in coconut if desired. Store in fridge. Will keep for a couple of weeks.
The ingredients I wanted to use and why.
Oats – High in fibre, helps reduce cholesterol and is high in antioxidants.
Prunes – excellent source of fibre, vitamins and minerals.
Psyllium Husk – fibre! and can help manage cholesterol levels.
Chia Seeds – massive amounts of nutrients with very few calories! Excellent source of fibre and antioxidants. High in protein and omega-3 fatty acids and helps lower the risk of heart disease.
Cacao Powder – packed full of antioxidants, improve your memory, reduce heart disease, boost immunity, and increase your bliss – hence bliss balls!
