Choc Protein Bliss Balls

Posted by Riannon Page on

A great recipe to boost your protein intake whilst curving your afternoon sweet craving! These bliss balls are a great recipe to make each week to ensure you’ve got a healthy snack to go to when you’re feeling hungry or when you need a snack between meals. Perfect for busy mums, if you’re breastfeeding or on the go.

Healthy Fats: Nuts and seeds in bliss balls are excellent sources of healthy fats and omega-3 intake. Adequate intake of these fats supports the synthesis of sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone, and helps maintain a healthy menstrual cycle in women. Including a balanced amount of healthy fats in the diet supports overall hormonal health and wellbeing.

Blood Sugar Control: The combination of protein, fiber, and healthy fats in bliss balls contribute to better blood sugar control, preventing rapid spikes and crashes in blood glucose levels. They also stop you from reaching for processed foods, chocolate or sugary food when you’re feeling hungry.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ cup shredded coconut 
  • 1 scoop natural protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder 
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (add more if needed)
  • ¼ cup water

How to Prepare:

  1. In a high-speed blender add the oats, cashews and shredded coconut. Blend until broken down into a fine meal.
  2. Mix in the remaining ingredients, blend until combined and sticky, adding more water or oil as needed.
  3. Scoop 1-2 tbsp of the mixture into your hand and roll into balls, then toss in desiccated coconut or cacao powder. Set in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm.
