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.
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
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.
