Hi there.

Welcome to my website. On my blog I share my best healthy, plant based and delicious recipes, and thoughts on a healthy lifestyle. I hope to inspire you to explore the wonderful world of plant based food and all that comes with it. In my portfolio you can find some of my work as a freelance food stylist. Hope you have a nice stay!

Toasted bliss balls

Toasted bliss balls

Never get tired of nutty bliss balls. These little yummy ones are covered in toasted, finely chopped hazelnuts and toasted coconut flakes. Can be the most delicious covering ever! 

This is a recipe that doesn’t have any exact measurements, I just mix the ingredients until I get the desired consistency and flavor. Therefore they never taste exactly the same, which I like! And I rarely get the exact same number of bliss balls, it all depends on how much I happen to eat before they’re even ready(!), and on how big ones I can bare to roll…If I had any freeze dried raspberries I’d probably put them in here as well. Use your imagination!

I call these ones toasted as I toast the buckwheat and any seeds or nuts I have in them – does a lot for the flavor!

Best,

T

 

Toasted bliss balls

 

toasted whole buckwheat groats

toasted sesame seeds

oats (gluten free if gluten intolerant) 

toasted coconut flakes

cacao

a pinch of sea salt

a pinch of cinnamon

dried dates

tiny bit of cold pressed coconut oil

oat milk/almond milk/coconut milk/your choice of any plant based milk (water works just as fine!)

toasted and finely chopped coconut flakes and hazelnuts for rolling

 

How to

Start with mixing the buckwheat (use dried, whole buckwheat and rinse in boiling water before draining and toasting in a hot, dry frying pan until golden and crisp), add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until a powder-like consistency. 

Add pitted dates (use more for a sweeter taste, fewer for a less sweet bliss ball. Then you just have to use more plant milk instead!) and oil, pulse a few times. Add the plant milk until the right consistency. You may have to add a bit more cacao/salt/cinnamon to fit your preference, or more oats to get the right consistency. 

Form in to balls and roll in toasted finely chopped hazelnuts or toasted, mixed coconut flakes. Store in the freezer or fridge.
