Two of my favourites - caramel and macadamias, combined to make these raw caramel macadamia bliss balls. Also included is the thermomix recipe.
Today's recipe is an adaption of my popular Raw Caramel Slice recipe – one of the first recipes I shared on Becomingness.
It is still my favourite dessert recipe and it made me wonder if it would work as a bliss ball.
The results speak for themselves – I may even prefer it to the original, as you still get the amazing caramel flavour, but in a easier to make recipe. You can't go wrong with that!
I am a big fan of healthy snacks that are easy to make and these bliss balls fall right into the easy to make category! They only take 15 minutes to make or even quicker if you are making them in your thermomix.
You only need a few ingredients to make them, including:
- Medjool dates
- Coconut oil
- Maple syrup (or raw honey or rice malt syrup) - this is an optional ingredient
- Tahini (either hulled or unhulled)
- Vanilla extract
- Desiccated coconut
- 150 grams macadamias
- 170 grams medjool dates, pitted
- 120 grams maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons tahini (either hulled or unhulled)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ¾ cup desiccated coconut, for coating
- Place the macadamias in the thermomix bowl and process for 3 seconds / speed 5
- Next, add the remaining ingredients (except the desiccated coconut) and process for 10 seconds / speed 7 or until well combined.
- Place mixture into the freezer until firm, approximately 30 minutes.
- Remove from the freezer and roll the mixture into small balls and coat in the desiccated coconut. Place on a lined baking tray and freeze until firm.
- Store in the refrigerator.
The cook time does not include the times it takes for these bliss balls to set.
