(Makes about 10)
*Raw cashews (not salted or roasted) x 1 cup (soaked in water for at least an hour, then drained)
*Dessicated coconut x 1 and 1/4 cup
*2 tablespoon’s of nut butter (use cashew butter if making Anzac-biscuit bliss balls), I used one of the Superspreads from Mayver’s that includes several nuts and chia seeds.
*3-4 tablespoon’s of maple syrup (I used 3, but if you want them slightly sweeter, add the extra spoon)
*Coconut oil (I use the low aroma, refined oil, but any coconut oil is fine) x 2 tablespoon’s (melted)
*If making Anzac biscuit style Bliss Balls add 1 tablespoon of Golden Syrup
*If making more of a traditional chocolate truffle, add 2 teaspoon’s of raw cacao
-Process the softened cashews in a food processor and put them into a bowl.
-Add the remaining ingredients and form into balls with wet hands.
-These bliss balls need to be refrigerated (covered with cling wrap or in a sealed container) to keep their shape and to keep them fresh. Consume within 4-5 days.
Bliss balls are a healthier alternative to truffles and are a concentrated form of nutrients.
Instead of using biscuits and condensed milk as a base, healthier, nutritious ingredients are mixed together to form a quick snack or sweet treat. They normally retail for about $3 each, so making your own is more economical.
