Baobab, Apricot & Pumpkin Seed Bliss Balls
Bliss balls are always a hit and we love this version from Aduna Triber Monique, made with some of our favourite ingredients - natural dried apricots, creamy cashews, crunchy pumpkin seeds - and of course our zingy baobab! The perfect option for an energy boost on-the-go or a healthy dessert.
Makes approx. 20 balls
2 tbsp Aduna Baobab Powder
200 grams dried apricots (about 1 cup, firmly packed)
3/4 cup cashews, raw
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup protein powder, neutral flavoured - OR 1/2 cup rolled oats/quinoa flakes/buckwheat flakes
3 tbsp water
1/2 cup desiccated coconut - optional, for rolling
Method:Place apricots and cashews in to a food processor and process until the apricots are blended together and the cashews have formed a fine crumb.
Add the protein powder (or the rolled oats or other cereal flake), baobab, cinnamon and the water to the processor and blend again until well combined.
Finally, add in the pumpkin seeds. Pulse just enough so the pumpkin seeds break into smaller pieces, but large enough so you get some crunch through the mix.
Scoop out heaped tablespoons of the mixture, pressing together with your fingers, and then roll in to balls. You can dust them in desiccated coconut if you like, but they won't be too sticky so you can skip this if you prefer.
Pop the bliss balls in to a container and store in the fridge for up to a week, or keep them in the freezer where they'll keep for a few months, no problems.
