Walnut and Apricot Bliss Balls

These little bliss balls must the simplest recipe on my blog so far with only 4 ingredients! (not including the coatings)  All of which are very easy to find, yet there is so much nutritional goodness packed into these simple and delicious energy balls!

Iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, vitamin A, folic acid, essential fatty acids Omega’s 3 & 6 and protein and fibre.

These make a perfect healthy snack you can take in a packed lunch. For people like me who feel they need to round of meal with a sweet taste these are great! They are sweet and tasty but also really satisfying and filling, unlike a lot of sweet things.

*Look for sun dried apricots, they should be dark brown, NOT bright orange. The Bright orange ones have been dried with the preservative sulphur dioxide which is not good for health, people with asthma shoul dbe especially careful to avoid sulphur dioxide.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup almonds

3/4 cup walnuts

3/4 cup sun dried apricots

1/4 tsp himalayan pink salt

Optional sprinkles:

Gogi’s

Desiccated Coconut

Chia seeds

cacao nibs or powder if you want to make them chocolatey, I didn’t.

Method:

Throw the  almond, walnuts, dried apricots and salt into a food processor or blender and process for a couple of minutes, you may need to scrape down the sides a couple of times. (I used a vitamix but if I had a food processor I would have used that!)

Once the mixture starts to be thick and uniform throughout with no big chunks and when you squeeze a bit between your fingers it stick together nicely its done.

Now just roll it into little balls what ever size you like,  I did mine about a tablespoon at a time.

The I coated some in coconut, some in chopped gogi’s, and some with chia seeds.
