  • 2 Teaspoons of Vanilla essence (optional)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of chia seeds (optional)

Method:

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until 'smooth'.
  • The texture of the final mixture will be dark brown and quite 'grainy'.
  • Empty the 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut out onto a plate or tray.
  • Wet your hands and take a small handful of the mixture and roll in palms until you've formed a ball. Roll the ball through the desiccated coconut until covered.
  • Store Bliss balls in fridge - in an airtight container or wrapped in cling film.
