Yum, it's strawberry season!

Not only are strawberries known as natures candy, they're also bursting with health benefits making them the perfect addition to your weekly shop.

Rich in both vitamin C and folate, they are important for a healthy immune system, and perfect for growing kids!

These Bliss Balls are easy to make and a fab lunchbox treat. 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 200g Queensland strawberries, hulled
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry syrup (optional)
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut plus a little extra for rolling
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Large pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds or chopped toasted nuts

METHOD:

  1. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor.
  2. Process until the mixture comes together.
  3. If the mix is too sticky add a little more desiccated coconut.
  4. Roll into balls and coat in coconut.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

NOTES:

  • You can make these balls with oven-dried strawberries which have a more intense flavour and a slightly chewy texture
  • Try one of the other nut butters like pistachio or almond as a fresh change from peanut butter

Makes about 20 balls
