One of our favourite things to do in Costa Rica (besides play in the ocean and practice yoga) was eat. Bliss balls quickly became a staple. Here’s a decadent recipe that is good for you too!!
2 cups oats (quick or old fashioned, both work)
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup almond butter
Pinch of sea salt
Nuts, seeds and dry fruit of your choice (optional) * I like pumpkin seeds & goji berries.
Mix oats, coconut and any nuts, seeds or dried fruit together in a large bowl and set aside.
Put all remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a low boil over medium heat.
Reduce heat and stir for one minute, until the almond butter has completely softened and you have a smooth and chocolatey sauce.
Remove from heat and pour over the oat mixture. Stir to combine.
Drop in teaspoon-sized balls on waxed paper and let cool.
Store in the fridge.
