5 Minute Apple Cinnamon Bliss Balls

Everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a right, except when you’re cooking!

When my attempt at creating a new recipe went wrong, I decided to tweak a couple of things and whizz all the ingredients together and turn them into this version of bliss balls.

And to my surprise my whole family love them just as much as these No Bake Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls and the Choc Strawberry Bites from my Real Food For Hungry Teens ebook 

And happily, they are sugar-free, gluten-free.

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Here are some of the ingredients you’ll need:

Medjool Dates
Dried Apple 
Cacao Powder
Cinnamon Powder
Chia Seeds
Desiccated Coconut
Coconut Oil

If you’re looking for more recipe inspiration, take a look at my new recipe ebook which is getting rave reviews, Easy Wholefood Lunchboxes.

It’s packed with 40 delicious nut-free, refined sugar free sweet and savoury recipes which have all been kid-tested and approved!
