These Thermomix Chocolate Chia Bliss Balls are rich and chewy and filled with so much goodness. They’re perfect for keeping in the fridge for a mid afternoon snack or post workout when energy levels are low.
There are hundreds of recipes out there in the blogosphere for bliss balls, energy balls or protein balls. The trouble I have with most of them is that they contain nuts of some description. Unfortunately we have an anaphylactic in our household so we need to steer clear of certain nuts, which means I can’t use them in the Thermomix for fear of cross contamination. Even if the bowl has been washed, there is always a risk and it’s just not worth it. It’s a real bummer as I would love to make peanut butter and cashew butter but thankfully she is ok with almonds so I still make almond butter.
This recipe is great as I’ve used sunflower seeds instead. All the ingredients are good for you as long as you don’t eat too many at once as dates are extremely high in fructose.
- 250 g dates, pitted
- 150 g sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
- half a teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- pinch of salt
Place the sunflower seeds into the bowl and grind 5 sec/speed 9.
Remove the stones from the dates and add them to the bowl and chop 10 sec/speed 7.
Add the remaining ingredients and combine 10 sec/speed 5.
Roll the mixture into bite size balls and place them on a tray in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.
These Thermomix Chocolate Chia Bliss Balls can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
