Festive Coconut Bliss Balls (raw, paleo) / Energetske kuglice sa kokosom u blagdanskim aromama (sirove, paleo)

With Christmas time and holidays slowly approaching, I’ve been thinking about festive seasonal recipes so I get my things organized and ready ahead of time. This desert / healthy snack is super easy and quick to make, but the combination of cloves and cinnamon gives the Christmas-y vibe, so I’m definitely keeping this in my arsenal.

METHOD:

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until a crumbly dough forms. If the dough feels too wet and too sticky, add a bit more coconut. Using your hands shape the dough into balls. Store the bliss balls in your fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. Hide from all family members who lack self-control, as these are super tasty and addictive.

Pošto se božićno i blagdansko vrijeme polako približavaju, razmišljam o prigodnim receptima kako bih unaprijed imala sve pripremljeno i posloženo. Ovaj desert / zdravi snack je jako jednostavan i brz, ali kombinacija cimeta i klinčića baš daje onu pravu božićnu vibru. Stoga ovo definitivno ostaje u mojem arsenalu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12-15 kuglica / 8,25 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

1 šalica kokosovog brašna (2,50 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

1 žličica cimeta u prahu (0,50 kn)

½ žličice klinčića u prahu (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ubacite sve sastojke u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete grudičasto tijesto. Ako vam se čini da je tijesto previše mokro i ljepljivo, ubacite još malo kokosa. Rukama tijesto formirajte u kuglice. Kuglice čuvajte u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi, gdje će držati do tjedan dana. Obavezno sakrijte od svih članova domaćinstva kojima fali samokontrole, pošto ove kuglice izazivaju ovisnost.

Since I really enjoyed my first experiment with these healthy and easy snacks, I decided to whip up some more bliss balls. IMO, these taste just like Snickers, which is pretty much a win in my book.

Also, you can easily make the oat flour yourselves. Just throw some rolled oats into a food processor and pulse to grind them down in a fine powder.

IMGP7260

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 10 bliss balls / EUR for all)

10 pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

2 tbsp peanut butter (0.27 EUR)

1 cup oat flour (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp raw cacao powder (0.13 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7261

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 peanut butter, oat flour, cacao powder and salt. Pulse until thick dough forms and if needed add a tiny bit of water to hold it all together.

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.

Pošto mi je prvi eksperiment sa ovim zdravim snackovima skroz uspio, odlučila sam smutiti još. Ove loptice me jako podsjećaju na Snickers, što je naravno fantastična stvar.

Također, zobeno brašno možete lako napraviti sami tako da samo ubacite zobene pahuljice u multipraktik i pulsirate ih dok ne dobijete fini prah.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 10 loptica / 7,01 kn za sve)

10 odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 žlica sirovog kakao praha (1,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Namočite datulje u toploj vodi 10-15 minuta prije početka da malo omekšaju. Ocijedite datulje, pa ih skupa sa kikiriki maslacem, zobenim brašnom, kakaom i soli ubacite u multipraktik. Pulsirajte dok se ne formira gusto tijesto, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode da se sve lakše drži na okupu.

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.
