An easy way to serve something special: bliss balls! These are nutrient rich, filling little snacks and they look wonderful.

You can vary them endlessly. I happened to have pineapple juice and decided to boil that down to a syrup, but you could just as easily use honey, agave, rice syrup, apple juice etc. As long as it’s sweet and sticky it’ll do the job 😉.

Here’s the recipe for the ones I made today:

Boil one cup of pineapple juice down to a syrup. Turn off the heat when the syrup is light golden; it is starting to caramelize.

Add nut granola (crunchy muesli with nuts, leave big chunks out) and dried shredded coconut and mix well. Everything should be thickly coated with sticky stuff.

Now part the whole bunch in halves and to one half add sesame seeds and to the other, add cacao. Bring to taste with salt if needed (I didn’t). Play with the ingredients (add dry or wet) so that you can form balls that stick together easily.

Now roll the chocolate balls in coconut and the sesame balls in sesame.

Serve with walnuts and if you have a sweet tooth, drip with honey or agave syrup.
