Bliss Balls – Apricot Almond or Date

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The fusion of apricots, almonds, coconut, chia seeds, vanilla essence, cinnamon, walnuts, and dates in these plant-based bliss balls creates a nutrient powerhouse. Apricots, loaded with vitamins A and C, contribute to healthy vision, skin, and immune function. Their natural sugars are balanced by ample dietary fibre, aiding digestion and promoting a feeling of fullness. Almonds add a dose of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, protein, and vitamin E, supporting cardiovascular health and a satiating crunch. Coconut, rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), can potentially boost energy levels and aid in weight management due to its quick conversion into energy by the body.

The inclusion of chia seeds in these bliss balls brings omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, and protein to the table. These tiny seeds are nutrient powerhouses, supporting heart health, aiding digestion, and providing a plant-based source of essential fatty acids. Vanilla essence and cinnamon not only enhance flavour but also offer potential antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, contributing to overall well-being.

Furthermore, walnuts and dates bring their nutritional prowess to these bliss balls. Walnuts are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and protein, supporting brain health, reducing inflammation, and offering a satisfying crunch. Dates, a natural sweetener, are rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals, providing sustained energy while promoting digestive health. Together, these ingredients create a delicious snack that not only satisfies cravings but also delivers a plethora of nutrients, making these bliss balls a delightful and nutritious treat.

Normally you might find me behind the coding of our sites but over the years I have become much more concerned about what has been happening in the kitchen as well - families do that for all of us don't they? Background experience is in Account Management and Web Development but as my passion has grown for WFPB so has my desire to speak out.
