Peanut Butter & Honey Bliss Balls (Thermomix & regular ways)

Peanut Butter & Honey Bliss Balls

Are you a PB & Honey fan?  I’m of the age where we were allowed nuts at school and Peanut Butter & Honey Sandwiches were a lunch box favourite, did you go there? It’s been forever since I had one. These Peanut Butter & Honey Bliss Balls are raw, egg free, high protein, goodness all rolled into one (they are also vegan if you are that way inclined) and they taste fantastic.  They are perfect for an on the go healthy snack. The kids also love these ones & they are great to give them a nutritious energy boost before the afternoon activities and for you too especially if you are the one doing the taxi service schlep!

I made these from scratch in the Thermomix, including the Peanut Butter (I know, I know just call me Martha! but I was keen to see what it would be like, insert thumbs up emoji), whatever your favourite PB is though, will be fine and a blender or food processor will also work to make the balls as well.  See, nobody needs to miss out!

If you do want to make your own PB I just threw about 1 1/2 C of roasted peanuts into the Thermomix (sorry I didn’t measure or weigh) and then blitzed them Speed 8 / 30 seconds, scraped the sides and blitzed again Speed 8 / 15 seconds, scrape sides, repeat Speed 8 / 15 seconds scrape sides and one final blitz Speed 8 / 10 seconds – you want to make sure all the oils have been released to make it a smooth paste and not a stick your tongue to the roof of your mouth never to be unstuck again paste.  I believe if you are doing this in a blender 10 minutes is the trick (Kiwi Country Girl has this method here).

By the way if you are a peanut fan, have you seen Yvonne’s Crunchy Peanut Cookies? Or if honey is your thing what about this Honey Cinnamon Pantry Staples Cake, they are not as healthy as these bliss balls but they are both nice! On the savoury side, my girls also love these Lamb, Mint & Honey Meatballs for dinner or lunch the next day.

And finally, here’s the regular way to make the Peanut Butter & Honey Bliss Balls

What you need:

3/4 C (75g) rolled oats

1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

1/2 C (50g) almond meal

1/4 c (40g) chia seeds

1/4 C (40g) peanut butter

1/4 tsp ground sea or rock salt

1 /3 C (60g) honey

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

What you do:

Line a tray or board with baking paper

In a food processor or blender blitz the rolled oats until they are like a fine meal

Add the rest of the ingredients and blend together until combined

Scoop out bite sized amounts of the mixture and roll into balls & put on the tray

Freeze for about half an hour and then either eat or store in an air tight container for up to 6 weeks in the freezer.

    These are NOT vegan because they contain honey.
    Rice Malt Syrup or Pure Maple Syrup might be good substitutes for honey. But with the honey they aren’t vegan 😊
