Chocolate Bliss Balls with Cranberries and Roasted Sesame

Bliss balls are what I tend to make when I am craving something sweet but have no desire to actually bake something. I toss in fresh dates and other dried fruits I have at home together with tahini or some other nut butter, plus a grain(like oatmeal) as the base. From there I add in flavors like cacao or a berry powder. Roll them up into little balls and then in a coating like coconut flakes or sesame seeds, I’ve even tested matcha powder.

This recipe is of all my creations my favorite bliss ball. a little bit tart from the cranberry powder and a tiny bit crispy from the sesame seeds! I hope you’ll like them as much as I do, otherwise feel free to get creative and come up with your own bliss balls.

Chocolate Bliss Balls with Cranberries and Roasted Sesame
(serves 16 balls)

1 ½ cup oatmeal
12 fresh dates, pitted
⅓ cup cacao
2 tsp cranberry powder
2 tbsp light tahini
2 tbsp water (possibly more)
1 tbsp cacao nibs
⅓ cup of roasted sesame seeds for coating
a pinch of salt

Add the oatmeal to a food processor and pulse for 30 seconds. Add in everything else except for the sesame seeds and mix until the dough comes together (you may need a bit more water if your dough is too crumbly). Let the dough rest for about 10 minutes before rolling.  Coat the balls in the roasted sesame seeds. They keep for a week in the fridge otherwise you can pop them in the freezer.
