I usually fall sick once a year. Sometimes, it will hold off for even longer. But when it comes, it hits me like a freight train. In the middle of winter when any chance of wearing less than three layers or enjoying the morning sun are super bleak. And during school holidays. It all starts with my oldest (always him!) and then it spreads and we are so powerless, it is ridiculous. My youngest was the last man standing (still is!) and he has been running around dodging all of us, poor darling. Needless to say, food has been basic and we are finally returning to being excited about food after nearly two weeks. With the return of the appetite during school holidays comes the age old expression “Mum, I am hungry!”. Seventeen times a day. Probably more!

It is then that I make these energy balls or bliss balls if you may. A tasty little sweet snack to pop in your mouth while you are climbing a tree or digging a hole or simply having a cup of coffee. It is even better than having a spoonful of nut butter which I find oddly satisfying too on most days. These peanut butter and chocolate energy balls taste a bit like Oreos, just cleaner and more nourishing. The boys love to snack on these and will carry a couple when they go for a walk. Besides these, I have been working on a lot of curry pastes, veggie stews, more awesome cauliflower dishes, fancy daals and recipes for amazing vegetarian dinners.

    I’m looking forward to making these for the grandsons. I have a question about coconut cream — I find coconut milk and the light milk but I haven’t found the cream. Is it located in another part of the grocery store?

      Marisa, usually the coconut cream is with the coconut milk in the Asian section. It is in cans. If you can’t find coconut cream, place your coconut milk in the fridge overnight and only use the top portion that is thicker and has hardened.

      you could try desiccated coconut or almond meal or buckwheat flour if you want to keep it gluten free 🙂
