AT A GLANCE
Some people might call these bliss or energy balls - we call them can't-stop-at-one delicious. These little bites of goodness, with a good whack of salt cutting through the sweetness, make the perfect lunchbox snack or after-dinner treat. We've rolled ours in extra coconut, but they could also be dusted in raw cacao to make them look like truffles.
|01||Simmer maple syrup in a saucepan over medium-high heat until caramelised (3-4 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in coconut oil.|
|02||Process almonds and coconut in a food processor until finely chopped but not so much that they lose their texture. Add dates and process to combine. Transfer to a bowl, add sesame seeds, cacao nibs, vanilla, orange rind and juice, maple mixture and 1½ tsp sea salt flakes, and mix with your hands to combine well. Roll into walnut-sized balls, then roll in extra coconut. They’ll keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a month.|
