Beat Your Sugar Cravings: Chocolate & Acai Bliss Balls

My insatiable sweet tooth has always been my demise when it comes to healthy eating! In an effort to keep my sugary cravings under wraps, I’ve been throwing together these delicious, super nutritious little bliss balls!

These no-bake, healthy treats are super easy to whip up even for the most baking challenged. It’s a recipe I concocted after researching a few different ones online and taking my favourite bits from each. This recipe can be easily adapted to suit your preferences. Play around with different dried fruits, seeds, grains and protein powder, swap the honey for molasses to see what you can come up with!

So what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (not dessicated)
  • 12 dates,
  • chopped finely
  • 3 tsp organic honey
  • 4 tsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tbsp acai berry powder

Add rolled oats and shredded coconut to a blender. Adjust the setting and pulse a few times. The blend should be grainy but not a powder (like in the photo above).

Pour the blend into a large bowl and add the chopped dates, honey, almond butter, unsweetened cocoa and acai berry powder. You may need to adjust the measurements slightly to get the right consistency. If the mix is dry and falling apart when you try to roll up a ball, add a little more almond butter or honey. If it’s too wet, add more coconut or oats.

Now roll up the mixtures into 3cm balls. This recipe should make around 15, give or take how large you make them. Now enjoy straight away or store in an airtight container for whenever you have that sweet craving at school, work, on the go or as an after dinner treat!!

Hope you enjoyed this recipe and let me know how you go!
