BLISS BALLS / by lee tilghman

Bliss balls are the best!

Why? Not only are they extremely easy to make, full of whole ingredients, but they are the perfect pre-run, as a midnight snack, or cut up and thrown onto my breakfast bowls. They contain 5 ingredients and take just a second to make.

Ingredients: (makes 6 balls)

  • 10 pitted dates, soaked in water for 10 minutes
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • Assorted superfoods for toppings (matcha, chia, goji, cacao nibs, hemp seeds)

Blend the nuts and dates together in a food processor (I use my trusty Vitamix) until dough is achieved. If you do not have cashews, try using walnuts or almonds!

Transfer dough to a big bowl for mixing. roll them into balls. I like to make different sizes for different hunger levels.

Place your superfoods onto plates. Roll balls through superfoods until fully coated.

Keep balls covered and refrigerated for up to two weeks. These travel well, too, perfect for grab and go!
