Are beetroot and chocolate bliss balls healthy?

This recipe for beetroot bliss balls is free from refined sugar. The energy bites are naturally sweetened with dates and maple syrup.

The hero of this recipe is without a doubt the beetroot. Red beets are rich in healthy vitamins and minerals. They have so many antioxidants that they have been ranked amongst the Top 12 antioxidant foods by Healthline. Often called a ‘superfood’ beets are also a good natural source of fiber, potassium, iron and folate.

Are beetroot bliss balls gluten free?

In this no-bake recipe, we’ve used gluten free oats, rather than flour, so they are gluten free.

How to make beetroot and coconut bliss balls?

To make these energy bites you simply put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until you get a sticky dough.

You then take spoonfuls of the dough and roll them into balls, then roll them in the coconut flakes.

Chill in the fridge until they’re ready to enjoy.

They keep in the fridge for up to a week, ready for your next afternoon snack or mid morning coffee.

Can you make beetroot bliss balls nut free?

It’s possible to make these bliss balls nut free. We’ve used almond butter but this can easily be replaced with sunflower seed butter instead. You still get that deep, nutty flavour, while keeping this snack free of tree nuts.

Beetroot Bliss Balls

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats (180 grams)
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 75 grams cooked beetroot
  • 3 medjool dates (about 50 grams)

  • ¼ cup of almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, dark

  2. Add the maple syrup and chopped dates and buzz again.
  3. Finally add in the almond butter, cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Pulse until everything is well combined, scraping down the sides of your mixer between pulses.
  4. Scoop the dough out into a bowl.
  5. Spoon out a small amount at a time and roll it into a ball between your palms (this bit can get a little sticky). Each ball should be about 1 inch wide.

  7. After forming each ball, roll them around in the coconut shavings.
  8. Place in the fridge to firm up and enjoy with your next morning coffee!
