Chocolate Orange Bliss Balls

chocolate orange bliss balls

Chocolate and orange is a classic flavour combination which comes together in these tasty energy balls. They've been one of the most popular versions of my bliss (or energy) balls when tested on those who aren't accustomed to eating this type of food so I'd recommend them as a great choice for beginners.

Three great health benefits: good source of iron, good for heart health, rich source of antioxidants

Makes 8-10 balls
Keeps for approx 1 week refrigerated in an airtight container and freezes well for a couple of months

Ingredients:
125g almonds
250g medjool dates, pitted
3 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
zest of 1 orange
25g cacao nibs

Method:
1) Whizz the almonds in a food processor until finely chopped.
2) Add the remaining ingredients, with the exception of the cacao nibs, and whizz until mixture sticks together.
3) Form into balls and roll in the cacao nibs (you may need to press them into the balls so that they stick). Refrigerate for 1 hour to set
