ANZAC Inspired Bliss Balls
Each year on Anzac Day, New Zealanders (and Australians) mark the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings of 25 April 1915. On this day, Australians and New Zealanders commemorate their military service men and women for the sacrifices they made. It is has been said that the wives of the soldiers sent ANZAC biscuits to their soldiers abroad because the ingredients didn’t spoil easily, and they kept well on the transport via ships.
These bliss balls are inspired with all the flavour of ANZAC biscuits, in delicious bite sized balls. There is no baking involved, which makes them quick and easy to make! They’re also a perfect grab and go snack, so could even be used as a quick breakfast if you're up early for the dawn service!
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup cashew nuts

2 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs honey (or other sweetner such as golden syrup or maple syrup)
1 Tbsp nut butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor
