I’ve gotten a bit lazy in my recipe creation recently. I guess I could flip that and say I’ve gotten more effective. I wasn’t the one who discovered carrot cake bliss balls.
Instead of going out and looking for recipes, I’ve been letting other people do the work.
I wait for someone else to make something I’ve never made before and if I like it, then I’ll have a go myself. If it still gets a big tick then you get it here.
It’s really quite efficient isn’t it? I’m all about simplifying so if I can simplify how I get my recipe inspiration then why not?
Mother’s group is a brilliant source of recipe inspiration. My Mother’s group friends are pretty awesome cooks and they’re always turning up with new deliciousness where I can sometimes get a bit stuck in my gluten-free banana bread rut.
Carrot cake bliss balls are just that – little carrot cake-like balls of bliss. They honestly taste just like carrot cake.
I had one…. Then another…. Then another. Then I had to move the bowl out of reach to stop myself eating the whole lot.
They’re nut-free (pretty much everything-free) so lunchbox-friendly although I think next time I make them I’ll throw in some walnuts just to make them truly authentic.
I hope you like them!
I’d love to know what you think. Is my new recipe creation method genius or lazy?
Like bliss balls? You’ll love my healthy nutella bliss balls.
- Place the dates in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water then leave to sit for 10 minutes.
- Drain the dates and place them in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients and blitz until the mixture comes together.
- Use a walnut-sized amount of mixture at a time and roll into balls then coat in coconut.
- Refrigerate until serving.
