Chocolate Hazelnut Bliss Balls

These are a ‘ferrero rocher’ take on my classic chocolate peanut butter bliss balls.

What you need

1 cup roasted hazelnuts

3 tbsp tahini*

2 1/2 tbsp raw cacao powder

2 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp rice malt syrup/pure maple syrup (add a little extra if you prefer them sweeter)

1 tsp chia seeds

What to do

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until combined well (if mixture is too dry add a splash of water) 

Roll into desired sized balls (I made 10) 

Keep these balls in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy! S x

**Tahini is considered high FODMAP, however 1 tbsp is considered FODMAP friendly (Monash University Low FOMDAP guidelines).

CHOCOLATE COCONUT BALLS

As you have probably figured out by my posts, I absolutely love a little something sweet in the afternoon or after dinner. 

These are mixture of chocolate and coconut goodness but are gluten free, dairy and refined sugar free. 

They are super quick and easy to make, so why not try them out with your next cup of tea.

What you need:

1½ cups coconut

½ cup macadamia nuts

3 tbsp rice malt syrup

2 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tbsp coconut oil

½ tsp pure vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

Coconut milk (add a little if needed to help get the mixture to stick)

What to do:

Makes 12 balls

Process all ingredients together well (in a blender or food processor) until the mixture sticks together. If mixture is a little dry, add a dash of coconut milk to help bind the ingredients together.

Roll into small balls, keep in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.

Enjoy! S x
