Cashew cinnamon bliss balls

These bliss balls are one of my favourite go to snacks – they are quick and easy to make. These are a great and healthy snack for the whole family.

Ingredients

 

  • 3/4 cup cashew nuts
  • 1 cup dried dates
  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp crunchy almond butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • Optional: desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Add the dates and nuts into a food processor and chop for several seconds until finely chopped.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients into food processor and process into a rough paste.
  3. Roll paste into 2cm balls and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Notes

These yummy balls provide a tasty dose of energy that you can enjoy at any time of the day.

  • If the mix is feeling too dry and isn’t binding like it should you may need to add a touch more olive oil into the food processor and re-combine.
  • These can be meal prepped in advance. I highly recommend d you store them in an air-tight containers in the fridge especially in the summer and consume within 3 – 4┬ádays. They can also be frozen if you want to prepare a double batch.
  • Beware when giving them to kids for school that there could be other children with nut allergies so always make sure to double check before.
