Peanut Butter Chai Bliss Balls

Those that know me well, know peanut butter and me go together like wine and cheese. And that my friends, is a very good match! Throw in some cinnamon, cardamom if you have it and you’ve got a delicious spiced up version of my favourite nut butter.

(Makes 12)

 

  • 1 cup almonds
  • ½ cup coconut flakes
  • ½ cup fresh dates, pitted (if they are too firm, soak them in boiling water for 15-20 minutes until soft then drain water)
  • 2 heaped tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 3 drops doTERRA Cinnamon bark essential oil
  • 1 drop doTERRA Cardamom essential oil (optional, only if you have it!)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp honey
  • Desiccated coconut + cinnamon powder, to serve

 

  1. Using a food processor, blitz the almonds and coconut until fine and crumbly.
  2. Add the peanut butter and dates and process.
  3. Add the essential oils to the coconut oil (in the spoon is fine or a little ramekin) and enough honey so that it is sweet enough for you. Process until a sticky dough like consistency is reached
  4. You can always use 1 Tbsp cold water at a time to help achieve that sticky dough texture if needed.
  5. Using a tablespoon as a guide, roll into balls, coat with desiccated coconut and sprinkle with cinnamon powder. Freeze for about 1 hr before serving.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month.
