Raw Bliss Balls (with chili)
« on: June 18, 2012, 12:50:20 am »
There are so many different versions of Bliss balls but this is my favourite.
I am really quite bad at following exact amounts. I like to try it as I make it to see if it needs more or less of something.
These are approximate amounts, I do encourage to taste as you go!

Name of Recipe: Raw Bliss Balls

Ingredients:
1 cup almonds
1 cup oats
1 tbsp linseeds
2 tbsp flaked coconut
1 tbsp raw cacao powder or carob powder
1/2 birds eye chili (or to taste)
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp raw honey (or to taste)
2 tbsp goji berries

optional:
protein powder
maca powder
spirulina



Preparation:
Blitz all the dry ingredients (incl. chili) on speed 9-10 until you get it as fine as possible. Add in coconut oil and honey and combine on speed 7 for 10 seconds. Add in goji berries at the end on speed  :-: as to keep them whole.

You want them to be pliable enough to roll into balls. If they need to stick more, add more coconut oil or honey. You might need to put it in the fridge for a while so the coconut oil sets a little. Try rolling them in sesame seeds or coconut flakes.

Once finished, refrigerate, enjoy! (and keep refrigerated)

They say, "you are what you eat!" That's funny, I don't remember eating a sexy beast this morning.

I've made these before, and probs wouldnt overdo the chilli as it may just be like biting into a ball of fire type taste. Of course it depends if want her to remain your friend  ;)

These look rather nice ."......without the chilli for me.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

CP, she is a chilli freak  ;D biting into a ball of fire is exactly what she likes  ;D

Last time she visited me, she blitzed onions, ginger and a big handful of chillies to take home to use as a drink!  Would add some of the mixture to boiling water and brew like a tea. I have run out of honey, so will buy some at the markets tomorrow and make some.
