Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack to keep your energy levels up, these little Berry Bliss Balls are surprisingly filling.
Breakfast is a really important meal to ensure you give your body (and brain!) the sustenance it needs and to perform optimally. Unfortunately it’s also a meal that we struggle with and I’m no exception to that. This little recipe is very quick, uses up whatever you’ve got in your cupboards and will ensure you’ve got breakfast lined up for the rest of the week – just grab and go!
50g Dried dates
30g Dried Goji berries
50g Frozen blueberries
30g Seeds (use up whatever you’ve got!)
1 tbsp Nut butter
30-50ml Almond/Coconut/Soya milk
1 tsp Honey/Agave syrup
0.5 tsp Cinnamon
Desiccated coconut to coat (optional)
- Put your frozen blueberries, goji berries and dates into a blender until you have what resembles a frozen slush
- In a bowl mix the berry mix with the nut butter, honey, cinnamon and seeds then combine
- Now add the oats and combine, the mix will become very dry
- Add 30ml of your chosen milk, keep mixing and gradually add the remaining until you have a sticky mix which is mouldable (you may not need all of the milk depending on different brands of oats)
- Split your mixture into 8 and using your hands mould into balls
- Optional step: The outside of the balls should be a little sticky so put some desiccated coconut onto a plate and roll the balls to coat
You can swap any of the ingredients as long as you keep the wet/dry balance and is good with any fruit depending on the time of the year. I like to eat my Berry Bliss Balls with a cup of tea when I get into the office but would love to know your favourite way to eat yours.
