These healthy lemon delicious bliss balls are sweet, zingy and full of flavour! Kid-friendly and free from nuts, refined sugars and additives, they make the perfect lunchbox or work snack for all ages.
- 2 cups desiccated coconut
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ⅓ cup sunflower seeds
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla paste or extract
- ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
- zest of two lemons
- 6 tbsp coconut oil
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
Place all of the ingredients together in a food processor and blend until all of the ingredients come together and become slightly sticky. This may take 1-2 minutes.
Roll the mixture into balls (makes 20-22) and roll them in extra coconut.
Chill in an airtight container in the fridge, or freeze in a container until required. Enjoy!
Keep them in the fridge for 7-10 days, or freeze them for up to 3 months in an airtight container to pop into lunchboxes when required.
I always love adding extra lemon flavour to my cooking. But you can control the intensity of the lemon by adding the zest of either one or two lemons depending on your preference. Or, omit it entirely if you prefer a more subtle lemon flavour.
