Peanut butter cocoa bliss balls

Hello friends!

Today I have Peanut butter and cocoa bliss balls for you. (Hip hooray for bliss balls!) Just so you know, the definition of bliss is: ‘supreme happiness, utter joy or contentment.’ Need i say more?

I made this as a celebration. The celebration being, me re-gaining the ability to move, and not be repulsed by food anymore. You see I had a bit of a horrid week all and all. Firstly, it was the first week back from holidays which is always emotionally upsetting in itself. Except…I also happened to fall terribly ill on Thursday (I shall spare you the graphic, gory details!) and ended up too weak to move from the couch, or to stomach anything but dry cereal and apple juice. On the plus side, i rediscovered the brilliance of straws.

Anyway, 1 carton of juice, 4 days, and 20 hours of pointless t.v later, I bring you these delightful little gems which will rock your world.

The recipe makes roughly 22 balls (depending on how hungry you are when you roll them)

Here’s what you need: 

  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 3 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 T cocoa (should be cacao if you are a proper superfoodie)
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp honey (more if you aren’t very sweet)
  • boiling water

I’m sure you know what pumpkin seeds look like but here you go…IMG_1671 edit

This stuff is liquid gold (solid gold?, except gold is solid gold so…)

Next the oats and almond go inIMG_1674 edit

Chop up your dates and add them with the honey to your mixtureIMG_1675 edit

Now you can blend like a boss… Add in water slowly till it comes together and no bit is left behind.

Now take teaspoonfuls and let them get their jiggle on in some chia seeds

(or try cocoa if you’re a rebel)IMG_0682 edit

Then let them settle in the fridge to firm upIMG_0688 edit

Serve them with a cuppa tea and a smile (or just some daisies if you’re grumpy)
