This is one of those recipes that originated in my hippy days in the Kootenays of British Columbia, Canada.

We had a variety of flavours of ‘Bliss Balls’; this was a favorite.  It did have lots of honey in it though which I reduced the quantity.  You can replace it with rice syrup.  Also, it had wheat germ in it which I replaced to make it gluten free.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup honey
1 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy)
3/4 cup coconut
1 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds (for rolling)
1/4 cup currants

Directions:

  1. Blend honey and peanut butter.
  2. Mix in remaining ingredients except sesame seeds.
  3. Form into 1 inch balls.
  4. Roll balls in sesame seeds.
  5. Set on a plate or cookie sheet and let them form for 2 hours.
  6. Then store in an airtight container, each layer on parchment paper, in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Try to use organic peanut butter without all the additives. This is a good peanut butter with no unhealthy additives and is organic too. Smucker’s Organic Creamy Peanut Butter
I am a big fan of chunky peanut butter cause I like the crunch: Smucker’s Organic Natural Peanut Butter-chunky
