Raw Mint Choc Chip Bliss Balls
Ingredients
  • 250 g (2 cups) of Cashews
  • 20 g (2 heaped tbsp) of cacao
  • 50 g (2 generous tbsp) of Coconut Oil I use Loving Earth
  • 7 fresh organic dates pitted*
  • 1 handful of Changing Habits Cacao Wafers
  • 3 drops of peppermint oil
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
Instructions
  1. Add cashews, cacao, coconut oil and organic dates to a food processor or thermomix. Process for around 15 seconds, or until the mixture is well combined, the mixture should stick together without breaking apart. If the mixture is too wet, add more nuts, if the mixture is too dry, add more coconut oil.
  2. Add cacao wafers and peppermint oil to the mixture. Pulse for 10 seconds. You want the cacao wafers to add a little crunch to the balls; so don’t process them too much.
  3. Using your hands, roll the mixture into bite-sized balls and set aside.
  4. Pour desiccated coconut on a large plate or flat surface and roll each ball in the mixture ensuring it is coated well
  5. Place the coconut-covered balls in the freezer for approximately 15 minutes. This will set the coconut oil.
  6. These delicious balls store in the fridge or freezer. These are perfect as a kitchen activity for children. Feel free to substitute cashews for other varieties of nuts. I often alternate between Walnuts and Cashews just to change things up.
