Brenda’s Brekky Ball (great for anytime of day!)

I recently ran my Think Outside the Cereal Box breakfast workshop and found it was a very popular topic!

 

It was great to see so many people eager to get inspiration to move away from nutrient-depleted boxed cereal, and onto much healthier wholefood options.

As a treat I thought I would develop a bliss ball recipe especially for the participants, and to show them how stuck we tend to get, into boxing our meals into morning, noon and night timeslots. A big bliss ball (or two) isn’t just a snack or healthy treat. Because it is much more nutrient-dense than say, Weet Bix, it can be eaten for brekky along with a green smoothie or big glass of milk. There’s really no need to time-of-day define it.

The Cacao powder in the bliss ball acts as a powerful antioxidant and immune-booster in its raw state.

The nuts and seeds offer a great source of fat and protein (chia seeds are very high in Omega 3s) , and the dates provide a natural source of sweetness and an easily digestible source of fibre.

Coconut oil is great for boosting the metabolism and helping us feel satiated, as well as being anti-viral, anti-fungal. What a great immune booster!

Here’s the recipe which makes around 8- 10 large balls or 15 smaller ones.
