Not only can you make these cute Christmas bliss balls without turning on the oven, they’re also a fabulous, weight loss friendly healthy sweet treat.
- 1/2 cup fresh dates pitted
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup nuts of your choice almond, walnuts and pecans all work well
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp coconut butter, or regular butter slightly softened and cubed
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 Scoop of Chocolate IsoWhey
2 tbsp desiccated coconut, cocoa, or sprinkles for rolling
Soak dates and cranberries in a glass or small bowl of warm water for 15 minutes or until soft.
When the fruits are nice and soft, drain and tip dates into the bowl of a food processor.
Add the remaining ‘ball’ ingredients to the processor and process until combined (the ‘dough’ will become quite dense and sticky when properly combined).
Remove mixture from food processor and roll into teaspoon sized balls.
On separate plates, shake out your desired toppings.
Roll each ball in your chosen topping before placing on a dinner plate/baking tray/large tupperware container and popping in the fridge.
