Apricot Cashew and Pumpkin Seed Bliss Balls
Tasty, chewy and nutritious bliss balls made with natural dried apricots, cashews and crunchy pumpkin seeds. Gluten free, dairy free, no added sugar – the perfect healthy snack!
200 grams dried apricots (1 cup, firmly packed)
3/4 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
2 tbsp baobab powder (I used Aduna Baobab)(optional)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup protein powder (OR 1/2 cup rolled oats, quinoa flakes, buckwheat flakes)
3 tbsp water
1/2 cup desiccated coconut, for rolling(optional)
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), 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.
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.
