Dark Chocolate Almond Bliss Balls. Oh, how they are blissful!
I bought a big pack of dates and a box of raw almonds a while back, thinking that I would make bliss balls because they were the trendy raw vegan snack. Just yesterday, I finally made them and I am so thankful I did.
3/4 cup raw, unsalted almonds
1/2 cup oats
8 medjool dates
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
3 tbsp water (if necessary)
2 tbsp dark chocolate or raw cacao nibs (optional for coating)
Blend almonds, oats, and cacao powder in a food processor until smooth.
Add the dates one by one.
Transfer mixture into a bowl and add as much water necessary to form a sticky consistency.
Roll the mixture into ball shapes.
Optionally place dark chocolate/cacao nibs into a food processor and blitz until small, but still chunky. Roll the bliss balls into the chocolate pieces.
Refrigerate for twenty minutes or (if you’re like me) enjoy right away!
I stored my bliss balls in a tupperware container in the fridge. They can last a couple days, and make a healthy, satisfying, and sweet snack for any occasion.
