These are really the best chocolate bliss balls ever. And believe me – I tried a lot of recipes, experimented myself, and these are the first kids grabbed immediately. And you know that the kids are the worst critics.
Bliss balls are healthy treats that you can make within minutes and have them for a couple of days or a whole week. I even tried to freeze them for few weeks and they are good as well after unfreezing.
They are full of fiber, vitamins and minerals. They are refined sugar free, dairy free, and many are gluten free. The good thing about them is that you can pack them in a lunch box for kids or for you to take to work, or to school. They are also excellent for travelling. Eating bliss balls is a good way to incorporate nuts and seeds in your diet and this is the way my kids got used to nuts and nutty sweets.
Many good things to say about bliss balls, but my favorite is definitely the fact that you don’t have to measure or write down the recipes. Experiment, play, mix and match and have fun making these beauties and you’ll enjoy even more in them.
What you need for these chocolate bliss balls particular recipe is:
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup of ground biscuits (whichever your kids love, or you love, or have in the house)
- 1/2 cup of peanut butter
- 2 tbsp of cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup of dark chocolate, chopped
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1 + 1/2 cups of ground almonds (I used those from which I made almond milk, and just dried them a little bit in the oven)
- 1/2 cup of roasted almonds, chopped
- Blend bananas with biscuits, PB, cocoa powder and coconut oil until you get compact mass.
- Add oats, ground almonds and chocolate and whiz it 2-3 times and then transfer the mass in a bowl. Kneed by hand for a few moments, to even the mass.
- I use ice-cream scoop to make balls, but you can make them only by hands, it’s up to you.
- In the middle of some balls, I put a little bi of ground almonds, just to make difference. You can roll the balls in them too. These on the picture are rolled in the ground crackers, kids like them that way. You can also roll them in coconut flour or shreds, almond flakes, shredded chocolate or melted chocolate… the options are numerous.
I repeat that the main thing is that you can change ingredients according to your taste, you wont ruin the beauty of them.
