Diana's Bliss Bites




8 pitted dates, cut in half
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 tablespoon of cacao powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 handful of shredded coconut
2 tablespoons of linseed/flaxseed
1 tablespoon of LSA mix




  1. Put all the ingredients (except the coconut) into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth
  2. Roll the mixture into balls (it should make around 8 small balls) and then roll in the coconut
  3. Place in the fridge for at least of 20 minutes before eating.


Fancy some added intensity? Diana suggests adding 1/4 cup of dark chocolate to the mix (but, this means the mix will no longer be dairy free).
