I really enjoying trying new flavour combination of bliss balls, the sky is literally the limit when it comes to energy balls. I personally love the classic nuts, dates and raw cacao powder but this apple and coconut have definitely stole my heart.
This is the first time I have used and oats base and it worked really well, they also pack a fibre and complex carbohydrates punch so they are perfect for a speedy breakfast or for a post workout snack. I love the combination between apples, figs and coconut. It might sounds a bit weird but it works really well!
Makes about 10-12 balls
½ cup of pecans
¾ of cup of oats
3 tablespoon of shredded coconut + more for coating
6 dried figs (if possible try to buy the ones without any preservatives or sulphates)
½ apple grated (skin included)
1 tablespoon of date syrup (optional)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Place the oats and the nuts into a food processor and blitz for until a flour starts to form. Add all the remaining ingredients and process for another minute or so until you have a sticky dough. Remove the mixture from the food processor and roll them into balls of the size you prefer. Coat them in the shredded coconut and place them in the fridge for half an hour to firm up.
You can store them in air tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. ( I normally tend to eat them all in a couple of days :))
