A group of students took up the opportunity to have fun in the kitchen on Wednesday afternoon and learnt how to make a quick, easy,healthy Byron bay treat – Bliss Balls!. Sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan and raw, these treats are an alternative to sugary desserts and snacks. Bliss balls can be a variety of flavours and contain many different natural and raw ingredients. The students learned about these ingredients used and why they are healthier options. This particular recipe included coconut oil, rice malt syrup, raw cacao, shredded and desiccated coconut and almond meal.
We decided to be original with the recipe and did not use exact measurements, but rather estimated and approximated… or just poured in as much as was in the bag!
And after lots of mixing, moulding the mixture into balls, then rolling each one in coconut……(and tasting the mixture as we went), we finished and the results were delicious! The cooks got to take home a container full of bliss balls and all agreed it was a simple and yummy recipe.
