I made these delicious morsels for the first time about 18 months ago. I fell in love. They are delicious, nutritious and super easy to make. What more could you want? The thing with modern life is we have so much thrown at us, we look at so many different things, we make our lives so busy that things tend to go in one ear and out the other. Am I right? So our attention span seems to be quite short. Well mine anyway. I move onto something else and forget. Recently going back over my Instagram feed and seeing past posts, recipes and creations made me feel quite nostalgic.
I came across these Seedy Berry Bites and wondered where they went, why I stopped making them?I always keep some raw powerballs in the fridge. Bliss balls. Protein balls. Whatever you want to call them. I love them but as I make a big batch at a time I do need a bit of time for rolling. These are even easier to make. Less fuss, less preparation. All you need is a silicon tray to press the mix into so each morsel can easily be turned out. I have an ice cube tray plus a mini muffin tray. All you need to do is process the ingredients and press them into the tray. Leave them in the fridge or freezer to set. Then eat! And try to stop eating them! I literally made them the other morning between getting home from walking the dogs and running out the door to personal training.
Being nutfree these are also great if you've been having a few too many raw snacks, cheesecakes or blissballs (depending on your recipes) Or if you have a nut allergy. You can use any dried fruit, the below is my preference, but make sure it's preservative free dried fruit. Most supermarket dried fruit is full of sulphites and can have added vegetable oil
Seedy Berry Bites
1/2 cup each dried cranberries, dried cherries & Goji berries (make sure they are preservative free!)
1/2 cup hemp seeds
1/3 cup each sunflower & pumpkin seeds
6 dried figs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon Acai
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp nigella seeds
Blend all ingredients together in the food processor, not too fine a crumb though
Press into a silicon ice cube tray and freeze for an hour
Drizzle over melted sugar free chocolate or a mix of coconut oil, cacao and your favourite or to make these even quicker you can use your favourite chocolate chips blended into the mix
