Probiotic Bliss Ball

Nut Free, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free

I love bliss balls. They are such a great portable, convenience food that packs a good nutrient punch.

In one little ball, you can get a good dose of fat, protein, omegas and gut healing goodness, not to mention stabilising the blood sugar levels. So this a great little snack to have handy in the fridge & freezer.

Another reason I love them is because there is next to no effort to double the mixture and have snacks ready to go in the freezer.

Probiotic Bliss Ball

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup of sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup of pepita seeds
  • ¼ cup of linseeds
  • 5 dates(pitted) soaked overnight in ½ - 1 cup of water or coconut kefir (overnight soaking is optional. If you don’t do this step, then they will not have the probiotic goodness)
  • ¼ cup of coconut oil
  • ¼ cup of coconut butter (optional. If you don’t have the coconut butter, just double the amount of coconut oil)
  • ¼ cup of cacao
  • ½ cup of shredded or desiccated coconut for rolling

Optional ingredients:

  • 2 tbs of hydrolysed gelatine powder
  • 30g of clean protein powder
  • ½ tsp of tumeric

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients (except the dessicated coconut) in a high speed blender until it all comes together
  2. Use your hands to roll into little balls
  3. Roll in coconut
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days

Convenience Tip:

 - Double the batch and freeze half in an air tight container.

 - Don't have time to roll the balls, press the mixture flat into a rectangular baking pan and sprinkle the coconut over the top. After an hour in the fridge, cut into bite sized slices.
