Nut Free Chocolate Bliss Balls

Nut Free Chocolate Bliss Balls

Nut free and vegan? No problem. These tasty chocolate raw balls always go down a storm when we make them in nurseries and other nut-free settings. Replacing nuts with oats also makes them cheaper to make. 

Ingredients

Makes 15 medium size balls

2 cups pitted dates 

1 cup oats

1/2 cup goji berries 

6 tablespoons cocoa powder or raw cacoa

1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (optional for those with a super sweet tooth) 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence 

Pinch salt 

Method

1: Soak the dates and goji berries in hot water for at least 20 minutes to soften

2: Add all the ingredients to a powerful food processer. 

3: Process until ingredients turn into one mass. 

4: Remove from processer and roll into balls. 

5: Roll individual balls in dessicated coconut or chocolate powder to finish. 

6: Enjoy! 

Tips:

-Store raw balls in the fridge to keep for up to two weeks or freeze and bring out in batches. 

-If you're lucky to live near a Turkish or Persian supermarket you'll be able to buy fresh dates (not dried for long) much cheaper than standard dates. We buy 2 x 650g boxes for £3.99 from Hackney TFC supermarket. A bargain!
