Nutritious Date And Oat Bliss Balls

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Place dates in a pot of water and bring to the boil.
  2. Drain the dates and put the liquid into a container and set aside.
  3. Place drained dates, coconut, oats and cacao in a food processor.
  4. Add roughly 1/4 of the date liquid to the mix and process (you may need a little more liquid than this, add it slowly until the mix holds its shape. If you accidentally add too much liquid add a little more of the other dry ingredients to balance).
