The tricky thing about sweets is that although they are really tasty, they are also full of sugar. But what to do when the need for something sweet exceeds all understanding? Our Blackberry Chia Balls are for just such situations. Not only are they quick to prepare, but they are also really healthy. In this recipe, you will learn how you can easily imitate them at home. In addition, preparation distracts you, which easily pushes desires to the background. Win-win situation!
But what is so healthy about blackberry and chia balls? On the one hand, there are dates, which are rich in minerals, B vitamins and fiber. They also contain a lot of natural sugar, so no sweeteners are needed here. We add blackberries, which are also rich in fiber, to the “desert bread” as dates are also called. Almonds, which also provide all kinds of vitamins, minerals and fiber, provide the necessary crunch. And we shouldn’t mention that chia seeds are definitely a superfood, right?
Wow, what a list of healthy ingredients – but our blackberry chia balls aren’t full of them. You can find more recipes that you can easily imitate at home under the hashtag #healthyeating. Say goodbye to expensive snacks from the organic market! Get started with these beauties here:
Only the good stuff here: Chia balls with blackberries
Small, sweet and full of good things: chia balls with blackberries.
First, soak the dates in warm water for 10 minutes.
Place the almonds in a food processor or coarsely chop them. Pulse the dates, berries and chia seeds in a food processor for 2 minutes. The dough should be slightly sticky.
Take a teaspoon of dough and make a ball out of it. Roll the finished balls in desiccated coconut. You can snack on the balls right away, but you can put them in an airtight container and let them cool in the fridge before serving.
