Bee Pollen Bliss Balls

5 Jan

I always keep protein balls/bliss balls in the fridge for a snack on the run or if I want a sweet fix after dinner.

My standard balls I make each week are usually leftover almond pulp from making almond milk, extra almonds, cacao, dates, orange oil and a superfood powder.  Other balls I love are Teresa Cutters Spirulina Protein Balls and Protein Balls from What Caroline Cooked (nut free so great for kids lunch boxes)

I came across these Bee Pollen Balls a few months ago and they have hit the top of the list – I love them!  The health benefits of bee pollen are amazing.  Bee pollen is richer in proteins than any animal source and contains more amino acids than beef, eggs or cheese.  Click here to read more of the amazing health benefits of adding bee pollen to your diet.

The original source of this recipe can be found here however I have converted the recipe for Thermomix.

You will need:

110g dates

10g cacao

40g tahini

45g nut butter

10g coconut oil

100g shredded coconut

20g bee pollen

sprinkle of salt

Method:

Place all ingredients into your thermomix and blend for 10 – 20 seconds on speed 10.

Scoop out mixture and roll into balls (I always use disposable gloves for this) and then roll in coconut if desired.

Enjoy!
