KitchenAid Food Processor Recipe - Jewel Bliss Balls

The name says it all. A little mouthful of bliss without any guilt. A delicious combination of fruit, nuts and seeds with the added goodness of raw cocoa. Makes: approx. 25 balls

Ingredients

150g almonds
200g fresh dates, pitted
75g dried apricots
¼ cup (45g) chia seeds
¼ cup (35g) pepitas
¼ cup (35g) sunflower seeds
½ cup (35g) shredded or moist flaked coconut
2 tbs (30g) raw cocoa nibs*
1 tbs raw cocoa powder *
½ tsp vanilla extract
good pinch ground cardamom
1-2 tbs coconut oil

Method

For the food processor:

Fit the food processor with the work bowl and multipurpose blade. Add the almonds and chop on speed 2 for 5 seconds or until roughly chopped.

Add the dates, apricots, chia seeds, pepitas, sunflower seeds, coconut, cocoa nibs, raw cocoa, vanilla, cardamom and 1 tbs of the coconut oil.

Process on speed 2 for 5 -10 seconds or until mixture reaches the desired texture. It should still have some chunks to show off the beautiful colours and textures of the ingredients. Take a small amount of the mixture in your hand and roll it into a ball. If a little dry add the remaining coconut oil and quickly pulse (don’t over process).

Roll into bite sized balls to serve.


For the food grinder with stand mixer:

Fit the food grinder with the coarse grinding plate to the stand mixer and place the mixing bowl underneath. Turn the stand mixer to speed 6. Add the almonds slowly to the hopper (don’t add all at once - allow them to slowly drop into the hopper). Follow with the dates, apricots, chia seeds, pepitas, sunflower seeds and cocoa nibs.

Remove the grinder. Attach the flat beater to the stand mixer and fix the mixing bowl in place. Add the cocoa powder, vanilla, cardamom and 1 tbs of the coconut oil to the mixture. Turn to speed 4 and mix 10 seconds or until mixture comes together. Take a small amount of the mixture in your hand and roll it into a ball. If a little dry add the remaining coconut oil and mix on speed 4 to combine.

Roll into bite sized balls to serve.

Tips

* Raw cocoa is available from health food stores.

*Unrolled mixture can be kept in a sealed container for up to 1 week. Roll the bliss balls fresh as you need them, they will stay fresh and moist this way.
