Apple Pie Bliss Balls

April 6, 2016

Apple Pie is one of my favourite desserts, it’s like a warm comforting hug! And we all know how much I love bliss balls, so I decided to combine the idea of a classic pudding with a healthy twist – all in mini bite sized pieces…

Lots of recipes tend to use dried apple but I decided to try making them with a real apple and they turned out delicious. The oats and almonds help soak up any of the juice and the dates bind them together, a squeeze of lemon juice helps to keep them from discolouring quickly.

Ingredients

  • 50g almonds
  • 75g oats (gf if needed)
  • 75g dates (approx 10)
  • 1 apple, peeled
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp of cinnamon

Method

Put the oats and almonds in a food processor and blitz until a fine crumb. Pit the dates, peel the apple and chop into small pieces. Add to the processor with the lemon juice and cinnamon and blitz together until sticky. Using a spoon, roll into balls and pop on a tray. Store in the fridge or freezer, makes approx 12.
