Bliss balls are literally one of the easiest things ever to make. If you have a food processor, blender or a Thermomix, then you’re sorted! For years I’ve been making the classic version of a bliss ball, which has 3 ingredients (dates, almonds and vanilla essence) and tastes like a super-yummy, caramelly ball of nutty, crunchy heaven. And I love chocolate brownie bliss balls, which are essentially the same as the classic version, but with a little cocoa powder added in. But as always seems to happen, things just have to be taken that one teensy-tiny step further… So say hello to the cheekiest, yummiest and healthiest little bliss balls ever! Yep these are raw treats at their very best. Don’t believe me? Make one batch and you’ll be hooked… I pinky promise!!

The peanut butter brownie bliss balls are naturally sweetened by the dates and are packed with almonds, so they make for a great mid-afternoon pick me up. And of course, they are far better for you than an actual brownie (… although… how GOOD are brownies!!!!??!!).

And so that’s pretty much it… a healthy snack that tastes super naughty and yet is actually as sweet as pie. But healthy… so not like a pie at all! Anyway, just ignore me and my ramblings and toddle off to the kitchen to whip up a batch of these babies. They’ll last in the fridge in an airtight container for at least a week, but trust me, they won’t hang around anywhere near that long!
