Bliss balls are a wonderful super-fast way to create flavourful nutrient and energy dense snacks. You are only limited by your pantry and your imagination. You just need to get the right balance of wet, dry and sticky ingredients and play around with your flavours till you get something that tastes yummy and holds together.


Bliss Balls:

½ cup dried cranberries
200g desiccated coconut
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup raw honey

Chocolate coating:
100g raw cacao butter
40g raw cacao powder
50g maple syrup
pinch sea salt
½ tsp vanilla extract


Place chia seeds in a food processor and blitz till ground. Add the rest of the bliss ball ingredients and process till everything comes together. Roll a tablespoon of the mixture into small balls and place in the freezer to chill while you make the chocolate.

Melt the cacao butter over a double boiler. Once you have a fully melted golden liquid remove the cacao butter from the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Allow to cool for 5 or so minutes.

Get the rolled balls out of the freezer and dip them half into the chocolate, or drizzle with chocolate. Leave to harden on a baking paper lined tray. Once all have their chocolate decoration return to freezer or fridge to set.
