I LOVE LOVE LOVE to snack. Ask anyone at the office, I swear I must annoy them with how often I get up to raid the fridge. So when I do snack I try and make sure I have healthy options on hand. These bliss balls are just that! Healthy and delicious with the bonus of an extra boost of veggies in your diet – winning!
Zucchini Lemon Bliss Balls
3/4 cup grated zucchini
1/3 cup almonds
1/2 cup dates
Zest of 2 lemons
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup coconut flakes
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
Prep TIME: 10mins
First, grate the zucchini and place it in a sieve to drain all of the liquid from the zucchini, stand for at least 10mins. After 10mins squeeze the zucchini with your hand to remove any excess liquid.
Then put the almonds together with the dates into a food processor or blender and process until a sticky mixture forms. Then add the lemon zest and juice. Tip mixture into a bowl and mix through zucchini, rolled oats and coconut flakes. Knead the mixture with your fingers to ensure it all sticks together. If it appears a bit crumbly add in 1 tbsp coconut oil – this could indicate that there is still too much liquid in the zucchini when added in. Form the mixture into balls and then roll in desiccated coconut. Chill in the fridge for 30mins then enjoy!
Food and Nutrition are my absolute jam and bringing them to you is an easy, bite sized way is what I live for!
I am the clumsiest person you will ever meet, often finding myself on the floor – usually a result of tripping over my own feet. This might have something to do with the fact that I am 6’3 (or 190cm) aka a giant amongst most of my friends.
I love to make a mess in the kitchen, writing isn’t really my thing, but I have vowed to get better so that I can share my journey and passion with all you of amazing people!!
