Bliss Balls

I love the idea of eating a clean diet, and try as much as I can to do so.  For me, buying organic wherever possible is a big part of my life.  I've made these bliss balls with mostly organic ingredients.  You could use whatever dried fruit you have really, just make sure that your ingredients are additive free. 

Ingredients (makes 8 balls):
2 handfuls dried organic apricots, soaked in water for at least 20 minutes
2 handfuls fresh Medjool dates, pitted
1 handful cacao nibs
1 handful nuts (I used walnuts)
1 handful organic dried fruit (I used white mulberries)
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp sweetener (I used coconut nectar)
1 tbsp Superfoods for Kidz Berry Choc Chunk
1 tbsp linseeds
1 tsp vanilla essence
Pinch of sea salt

Organic dessicated coconut, for rolling the balls in at the end

1. Drain the apricots and put into food processor or Thermomix.  Add the pitted dates.  Process for about 20 seconds or until finely chopped (20sec/sp6 in Thermomix)

2.  Add the remaining ingredients and process for a few more seconds until the nuts are chopped (but still chunky) and the mixture has come together (10sec/rev+sp2 in Thermomix).

3.  With wet hands, shape the mixture into 8 balls and then roll in coconut.  Store in the fridge.
