Gingerbread bliss balls

Gingerbread bliss ballsMerry Christmas friends!

Here is a recipe that I made to take to a Christmas Day lunch. They are zingy with the ginger so maybe you want to adjust to your own tastings. I used Noya Hazelnut spread in these but I think they would work wonderfully with Tahini- a but more earthy.

Post feasting these will be great with a tea at Christmas lunch and then if there are any remaining during and after some running sessions!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 8-10 dates (soaked in hot water for 5 min) (keep 2 tbsp of this water)
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp all spice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp hazelnut spread (or tahini)
  • Shredded coconut for rolling in

Method

  • In a blender add the almonds and blitz until a crumb
  • Add in ginger, all spice, cinnamon and blitz again
  • Remove dates from water and add into the blender along with 2 tbsp of the soaking liquid, hazelnut spread and maple syrup
  • Blend again so that it forms an amazing smelling dough
  • Attempt not to just put it straight into your mouth
  • Roll into balls
  • On a plate put some shredded coconut and roll the bliss balls around to coat
  • Place on a plate and then into the fridge to firm up

Enjoy
