Hello lovelies! I like to make little healthy snack balls (I feel ridiculous calling them Bliss Balls...but these are blissful) to have as a dessert treat after a meal. Mostly they are made with cocoa powder but I wanted some salted caramel flavour and so threw these together with stuff I had in my kitchen.
Man, they are good. You can make them even more yum with a teaspoon of salted caramel extract from your baking aisle, but they are lovely without it too.
These are quick to throw together and get much of their caramel flavour from dates....they need to be nice big sticky ones not dry hard ones. Medjool if you can afford them. I can't but I get a huge box of "Jordan River Dates" from Tesco (800g for £3.10) which are lovely.
Salted Caramel Snacks
2/3 cups (GF) oats
heaping 1/3 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
heaping 1/3 cup ground almonds
pinch sea salt
1 tsp salted caramel extract (optional)
10-12 sticky dates depending on size
a few TB water
1. Throw your oats, coconut and almonds into your food processor and grind into a powder.
2. Add the dates and salt and optional salted caramel extract and blend again until it sticks together. Add water a TB at a time and re-blend if it is is not sticky.
3. Roll into balls and store in the fridge.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy and healthy.
