  • ¼ cup water + 2 tablespoons
  • 200 grams Medjool dates at room temp (approx. 12 large)
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar Free or Natural Peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Weetbix Dust

Instructions

  • Ensure seeds are removed from dates and place into food processor with ¼ cup warm water. Blitz until a date paste is formed
  • Add the weetbix, peanut butter, cocoa powder and coconut. (about 1 – 2 mins). If mixture is still too wet, add more coconut, a tablespoon at a time until mixture holds its shape
  • Put bliss ball mixture into the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up before rolling. Meanwhile, clean and dry the food processor for the weetbix flakes.
  • Weetbix Flakes: Add wetbix, cocoa and cinnamon to food process ad blitz for 5 seconds.
  • Roll chocolate weetbix mixture into 8 large or 16 small balls, one at a time, rolling in the weetbix flakes as you go which will help them come together.
  • Let them set in the fridge for 2 hours before eating.
  • Store in the fridge in an air tight container. They will stay fresh for 10 days.

Notes

  1. Can you use regular dates? I wouldn’t recommend it as the medjool dates are sweeter than regular dates and you really need the sweetness from the dates in this recipe since it is the only sweetener.
  2. Peanut Butter Substitute: Swap out peanut butter for your favourite nut butter.
  3. Can you freeze these? Yes these are freezer friendly. Pop them into a freezer friendly container and let them defrost naturally before eating. They will freeze well for 6 weeks – if they last that long!
