It's the middle of the afternoon, you're sitting at your desk at work and all you can think about is food. I find that most of the time I am craving sweets. I try my best to keep healthy and I find that the afternoon craving is a very dangerous time for my health and for my bank account. So I have come up with a solution to help me out. Bliss balls! These flavour bombs only contain the good stuff with no additional sugar added so they work as a guilt free afternoon snack! These bliss balls are so quick and easy to make, that you will be able to dive straight into them when you have finished making them!  All you need to make these delicious treats is 4 ingredients! These are 100% gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free!

PB Cacao Bliss Balls (yields 6-12)

What you’re going to need

1/4 cup walnuts, blended into a meal

1/3 cup dates, chopped

1 tablespoon cacao powder

1 tablespoon peanut butter

coconut for rolling (optional)

Method

1. Set up a lined tray.

2. Add all the ingredients into a pulse blender. Pulse blend until the mixture combines. It will resemble the texture of soil but when pressed together will stick together.

3. Once combined, roll a generous teaspoon worth of the mixture into a ball. Repeat until all the mixture is gone.

4. Sprinkle with coconut (optional) and store in an airtight container in the fridge!
