One of the best combos in the world, Chocolate and PB. As you all know I am a huge fan of healthy snacks and blissballs is one of the most versatile when it comes to flavour combinations.
Each week I try to make them different and this week I felt like something a little more indulgent but still full of healthy ingredients. The healthy fats from the nuts and coconut means that one of these little flavour bombs will satisfy even the richest craving.
The added benefit of raw cacao powder gives these treats a decadent chocolate hit and because of the processing of the beans it is jam packed with antioxidants and nutrients to help you feeling energised and happy.
Who would have thought a little blissball could be so good for you.
I would love to see you recreations, simply tag blissfulhealth_ on instagram so I can show you some love and see your yummy treats.
Chocolate and Peanut butter Blissballs
- 1 cup of pitted dates
- 1/4 cup of boiling water
- 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of almonds
- 3 tbsp of raw cacao powder
- 2-3 tbsp of natural peanut butter
- 1 cup of dessicated coconut
- Pinch of himlayan salt
- Crushed peanuts to roll
In a blender blitz the almonds to form a chunky powder and set aside.
Now add in your dates, boiled water and vanilla extract to the blender and let sit for 3 mins to soften.
Now add in all other ingredients as well as the almonds and blitz together to form a slightly sticky dough but not too wet.
Roll into balls and then roll in the crushed peanuts.
Store in a airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
