When I first posted a pic of these balls of blissness no one could guess the flavour – the orange isn’t orange peel, nor apricot…it’s carrot! So eat ya veggies!
1.5 cups raw almonds
1/2 cup flaked coconut (plus extra for rolling)
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flaxseeds
1.5 tsp mixed spice
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 medium carrots (about 150g), chopped into 4 halves
About 18-20 medjool dates, pits removed
1/4 unrefined coconut oil, melted
Put the nuts, seeds and spices into a food processor/thermomix and process until finely chopped.
Add the carrots and again process for a few seconds until the carrot is grated and combined.
Finally add the medjool dates and melted coconut oil and process until the mixture comes together in a giant bliss ball!
Roll about 1 Tbsp of the mixture into a ball and optionally roll in coconut flakes, or any ground nuts or seeds to your liking. Repeat to make around 24 – 30 bliss balls. Store at the back of the fridge so the kids can’t find ’em! they will keep for about 2 weeks in the fridge, but they’re suitable to freeze also.
