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 chia seeds
1/2 cup psyllium husk
1/ 4 cup cacao powder
340g pitted prunes
1/2 cup raisins
1-3 Tbs of liquid – water, juice or even rum!
2 Tbs of coconut (optional)
Honey (optional) I don’t have a sweet tooth, so if you want to make these balls sweeter use a little honey. Add it to the food processor when you add the liquid.
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 adding the liquid as needed.
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!
