If you would prefer to lure yourself away from the chocolate aisle at the supermarket, do yourself a favour and whip up these chocolate bliss balls. Not only are there only 5 ingredients, but you can also choose your own adventure, sorry flavour, and keep your snacks interesting.
A word of warning: I make this recipe A LOT for folks at my essential oils workshops. Consequently, they are also now not-so-affectionately named “Crack Balls”. They can become an addiction, luring you to the fridge multiple times a day.. A degree of will power is required.
A note on the choose your own flavour bit. All this takes is 10-15 drops of pure food grade essential oils and you’ve created a taste sensation. I love peppermint or wild orange, but what about cinnamon and tangerine, or ginger with orange and cinnamon, or lime, lavender or rosemary – oooo fancy! Just make sure you are only using pure essentials oils, ok? That bit is very important, not all oils are created equal.
Thank you to my dear mate Jackie Isles for inspiring this lovely recipe.
2.5 cups of raw nuts (brazil, cashews, walnuts, almonds etc)
16 pitted medjool dates
2/3 cup raw cacao
1 heaped tablespoon coconut oil
10-15 drops of doTERRA essential oil (see above options)
Dessicated coconut for rolling
Blend in a food processor until you reach desired consistency. Roll into balls and into coconut, if you so wish. Pop into the fridge or freezer in an airtight container and eat within a couple of weeks (the balls can dry out a little if left too long).
