Moonlight Bliss Balls

This weekend's Moonlight Yoga was a success on so many levels. I'll save you the details (for now) and get right down to what so many of you requested from me on Saturday night: the recipe for those delicious Bliss Balls!

To recreate Saturday night's Moonlight Bliss Balls, you will need:

Whole large flake oats

Dried cranberries

Raw pumpkin seeds

Ground flax seeds

Unsweetened shaved coconut + more of the fine stuff for dusting


Dark chocolate chips

Golden raisins

Chopped ginger

Pineapple (or mango, or papaya!)


Sultana raisins

Note: No measuring required! Just guesstimate the proportions, taste, and adjust as need be.

Peel and chop roughly 2 inches of fresh ginger into small pieces.

Mix everything except the pineapple, banana and sultana raisins in a large bowl. (Use mostly oats, then toss in whatever nuts, seeds, dried fruit, ginger or chocolate you have on hand.)

In a blender, combine 1 or 2 ripe bananas with approximately half a pineapple and roughly a cup of raisins. If it's too thick to blend, add a tiny bit of water. You want to create a thick and sticky mixture, and it doesn't matter if the raisins aren't completely blended.

Pour the sticky mixture over the dry mixture and stir to coat.

Use your hands to shape the bliss balls, then roll them in fine coconut for an extra sweet touch.

Store in the fridge to help them set. They'll be less crumbly after an hour or so.
