Chocolate Coconut Bliss Balls

I keep these in the fridge as I prefer the texture. If you don't refrigerate them, they will be quite soft but still perfectly edible. You can make them any size you like. I usually make them the size of a ping pong ball for The Princess. You can also use any nut you prefer in place of the walnuts, or use all seeds if you have nut allergy issues.

  • 2 Tablespoons chia
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 Tablespoons heaped cocoa powder
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Place the walnuts, chia and sunflower seeds in a food processor and blitz until coarsely ground.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blitz until the dates are pureed and the mixture starts to come together.
  • Take spoonfuls of the mixture (depending on the size you are making) and press together to form a firm ball.
  • Coat in extra coconut and place on a tray.
  • Refrigerate until firm.
