Bliss Balls #1
|1 cup Dry coconut flakes
1/4 cup Almonds
1/4 cup Walnuts
1/4 cup Sesame seeds
1/4 cup Sunflower seeds
1-2 Tbsp Pumpkin seeds
1 Tbsp Flax seeds
1 cup Raisins/dates/cranberries
1/4 tsp Cardamom
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
5-6 stigma/threads of saffron
Ghee or Honey or maple syrup to roll if necessary.
|Gentle dry roast all ingredients except spices, raisins, dates and cranberries.
Roast separately since they need different heat. (Coconut flakes needs very mild heat, Almonds needs more heat) (Flax and sesame seeds pop while roasting, so keep lid and shift the pan, like popcorn)
Roast gently until golden brown.
Keep coconut flakes seperate after roasting, since we don’t want to grind them (they look good and crunchy)
Let all the seeds and nuts cool and put them into the grinder. (I use Magic bullet) Food processor or Vita Mix works too.
Grind into a fine powder.
Add cardamom, cinnamon, and saffron. Mix all ingredients together.
Roll into small balls with your hands.
If you don’t like to use raisins or dates or cranberries then use Maple syrup/ honey.
Keep them in a glass jar. Shelf life of 15-20 days.
