Easy Banana Date Bliss Balls

Easy Banana Date Bliss Balls

Taking 17 college credits, 3 part time jobs, friends, a boyfriend and 3 meals to cook every day, this celiac is all about quick snacks to satisfy my afternoon cravings. Since my celiac diagnosis, finding a cheap, delicious energy bar hasn’t been easy. That’s where my homemade bliss balls come in!

Chewy dates, gooey bananas, and crunchy nuts and seeds combine to form a healthy snack to power through the day. And when extras like cacao powder or Further Food Chocolate Collagen, chocolate chips, and nut butter are thrown in, every degree of sweet tooth can join the party. Feel free to experiment with your flavors and don’t be afraid of adding in some unusual ingredients. I recently discovered that spirulina powder is delicious when mixed into the base recipe while pureed strawberries creates a perfectly tart, pink treat!

Further Food Commentary:

This recipe is customizable to one's food preferences, yet the dates serve a myriad of purposes. Not only are they a great sugar alternative, but they can help alleviate constipation, heart problems, anemia, diarrhea and intestinal disorders. In addition, using bananas adds natural sweetness to the energy balls and a serving of peanut butter provides "good fats," the monounsaturated fats, vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, potassium and vitamin B6, which all contribute to decreased risk of heart disease and diabetes.
