While I have to admit that I don’t have a single health oriented bone in my body, I was excited that Lorna Jane’s team developed a nut free bliss ball. Unfortunately it meant that I no longer had an excuse not to make some healthy snacks, but I was excited and willing to give them a go.
I have always loved Lorna Jane, I have her app, her clothing line and her cookbook, Nourish. Although, I haven’t used any of these items as much as I should!
I failed the original Move Nourish Believe recipe quite a bit; I took out the linseed. I didn’t pre-grind the chia seeds. I accidentally used pitted dates instead of majool dates, which meant the mixture was much drier than it was supposed to be, so I then added some agave nectar to hold the mixture together. I have written out the recipe as I made it, if you want the original recipe from Move Nourish Believe then you can get it here.
Prep Time: 15 minutes.
Cook Time: None.
Storage Time: Lasts up to 1 week refrigerated in an air tight container.
Serves: 15 balls.
3/4 cup of sunflower seeds.
1/2 cup of pepitas.
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut (plus extra for rolling).
2 tablespoons of chia seeds.
10 pitted dates.
2 tablespoons of cacao powder.
2 tablespoons of agave nectar (or honey should work).
Step 1. Place all of the dry ingredients into your food processor, process on high for 2 minutes.
Step 2. Slowly add the dates, one by one, into the still mixing food processor until the mixture starts to come together. Then add the agave nectar, or honey until the mixture is able to hold its shape.
Step 3. Turn off the processor and take out your mixture, using about 1 tablespoon of mixture to roll into balls.
Step 4. Coat the balls in some spare desiccated coconut. Place the balls into an air tight container and they can then be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
