These tasty bliss balls are full of nutrients, and are a great source of potassium from the dried bananas and sunflower seeds.  

I made these nut free so they can go along to school with my children.  Many schools and early childhood centres are nut free, so these make a great addition to lunch boxes, or to a plate of shared food. 

banana bliss balls

Ingredients:

6 medjool dates (pitted)

90g dried organic coconut flakes or desiccated (plus extra for rolling)

70g sunflower seeds

60g dried organic banana pieces

The juice of a medium orange

Method:

Pop the sunflower seeds, and coconut into a food processor (I used my Nutri Bullet) and whizz to chop up the seeds and coconut flakes a little.  

Add the dried fruit and orange juice, and whizz until a paste forms.  Add a little extra juice if its too dry, or a little extra dried coconut if it’s too wet. Whizz again.

Form the mixture into 12 even sized balls and roll in coconut.
