Makes 14 bliss balls
1 cup raw cashew nuts
¼ cup desiccated coconut
Pinch of salt
5 pitted medjool dates (or 120g soaked, pitted dates)
1 tablespoon tahini paste
1 tablespoon maple syrup
¼ teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
1 tablespoon water (if using soaked dates, omit water)
3–4 tablespoons desiccated coconut or coconut thread
1. Combine cashew nuts, coconut and salt in a food processor and blend for 30–60 seconds, until broken down and mixture resembles a crumb.
2. If using soaked dates, squeeze to remove any excess liquid. Add all remaining ingredients to food processor and blend for a further 1–2 minutes, until combined and mixture is sticky.
3. Using a tablespoon measure and wet hands, roll mixture into balls. Using clean hands, roll balls in coconut to coat.
4. Place balls in fridge to set. Store balls in fridge or freezer.
