Honey and lemon bliss balls

Bliss balls are an excellent choice for your afternoon pick-me-up or post-workout snack. The moreish snack is full of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals and is a good way of incorporating seeds into your diet. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and free from refined sugar too!

Bliss balls are perfect for any snacking occasion and will satisfy any sweet tooth. They’re great for packing up in your lunchbox, gym bag or picnic basket to help keep your energy levels up and leave you feeling fuller.

Ingredients:

10 pitted Medjool dates
zest of 1/2 and juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
150g Honey Roasted Seeds or Salted Caramel seeds plus extra to coat
1 tbsp (20g) melted coconut oil
35g desiccated coconut

Method:

Soak the dates in boiling water for 10 minutes, drain and put in a blender with all of the ingredients apart from the coconut.
Blend until well combined but not totally smooth. Stir in the desiccated coconut, roll into balls; coat half of the balls by rolling them in the seeds.
Freeze for 30 minutes to firm up.

Happy munching!
