Cacao and Cashew Bliss Balls (vegan, paleo) / Energetski zalogaji sa kakaom i indijskim orasima (veganski, paleo)

These healthy and nutrient filled snacks are all the rage on the internet. Since the weather is getting warmer and warmer, I’m craving lighter and healthier foods and snacks. Bliss balls seem like just the thing to get me through the day and are also super easy to make, which is pretty much a necessity in my book, since I am a lazy person. 😀

(Yields 8-10 bliss balls)

10 pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

1 cup unsalted cashews (2.00 EUR)

METHOD:

Soak the dates in warm water to soften them up, about 10-15 minutes before starting. Drain the dates and add them to a food processor together with cashews, cacao powder, vanilla and salt. Pulse until thick dough starts to form, and as needed add a tiny bit of water, a teaspoon at a time.

Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes before forming into bliss balls, to ensure easier handling. Dampen your fingers slightly with water before shaping the dough into balls. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to five days.

Internet je poludio za ovim zdravim i izdašnim snackovima, a kako je vrijeme sve toplije, tako i ja nekako imam želju jesti laganiju i zdraviju hranu. Energetski zalogaji su baš prava stvar, a još su i jako jednostavni za napraviti, što je najbitnija stavka pošto sam ja jako lijena osoba. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8-10 loptica / 20,71 kn za sve)

10 odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

1 šalica neslanih indijskih oraščića (15,00 kn)

3 žlice sirovog kakao praha (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1-2 žličica vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Namočite datulje u toploj vodi 10-15 minuta prije početka da malo omekšaju. Ocijedite datulje, pa ih skupa sa indijskim oraščićima, kakaom, vanilijom i soli ubacite u multipraktik. Pulsirajte dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode, žličicu po žličicu.

Tijesto stavite u hladnjak na 30 minuta kako bi vam bilo lakše formirati kuglice. Ruke malo namočite, pa prstima oblikujte kuglice od tijesta. Čuvajte u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku do pet dana.
