Easter-inspired bliss balls with a delicious chocolate flavour and minimal sugar.
½ cup almonds/almond meal 2 tablespoons cashews
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon coconut milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil
½ tablespoon maple syrup or honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Place cashews in a small bowl, cover with some boiling water, and soak for 2 hours.
If you don’t have almond meal, place almonds in a blender and blend into a fine powder. Add shredded coconut and cocoa powder, blend until well combined.
Drain cashews and add to blender along with coconut milk, oil, vanilla and maple syrup. Blend until mixture is well combined and starts to clump together.
Transfer mixture to a bowl, then take spoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls. Optional: roll the balls in extra shredded coconut or cocoa powder. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
