These Hazelnut Bliss Balls have been a family favourite snack for many years in our household – not only do they boast a real ‘choc hazelnut’ flavour (and have a dark choc surprise in the centre!) – they’re a nourishing, nutrient-dense snack!

Hazelnut Bliss Balls recipe:

 Makes 10-12 balls

 Ingredients:

  • 3 cups hazelnuts (450g)
  • 1.5 cups pitted dates
  • Dash organic vanilla essence
  • 3-4 tablespoons raw cacao, to taste
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1-2 cups extra coconut for rolling

Method:

  1. Add all ingredients to processor and blitz until combined.
  2. Roll into small balls, coat in extra coconut.
  3. Store in air tight container in fridge for one week.

 Tips:

  • You can omit the coconut oil for a softer ball.
  • For an extra hit of chocolate, you can also include a piece of dark chocolate in the centre of the ball. Simply place this in when you are rolling the balls.
