I am yet to learn of someone that doesn’t actually like brownies. They are always on the table at our netball bake sales and birthday parties we go to, so they are clearly a firm favourite, being a nice sweet treat. However, as we are heading into winter and it’s easy to overindulge in comfort food I’ve created a healthy alternative. My Chocolate Almond Brownie Bliss Balls are chewy, soft, indulgent, chocolatey and oooooh so yummy!
Yes, you heard right – a healthy brownie!! Bliss balls are always so easy to make and help to satisfy your sugar cravings, which I usually have around 2pm. This chocolate almond brownie bliss ball recipe only requires 7 ingredients; almonds, dates, oats, cacao, cacao nibs, vanilla and coconut oil.
Australian Almonds are a locally sourced, homegrown product and are a healthy snack with a natural source of energy, making them a great addition to bliss balls. Almonds contain lots of healthy fats, fibre, protein, magnesium and vitamin E – making them a great snack to have on their own as well as in baking like these bliss balls I’ve made.
To make these chocolate almond brownie bliss balls, I blitz the ingredients on high speed in a food processor.
I like rolling my brownie balls in almonds for some added crunch.
I store the bliss balls in an airtight container in the fridge for a week. These bliss balls can also be frozen, although we ALWAYS eat them within a few days as they are THAT GOOD!!!!
These Chocolate Almond Brownie Bliss Balls are sure to satisfy any chocolate craving. I’m pretty sure that even the pickiest of children couldn’t refuse these balls of goodness! The oats provide protein and carbohydrate for energy, you’ll get a great amount of dietary fibre from the dates, a powerful boost of healthy fat and protein from the almonds, and the complex antioxidants found in cacao known as polyphenols help reduce ‘bad cholesterol’. All these benefits while you’re eating something that tastes decadent and delicious!
