Bliss Ball Recipe Ingredients
1 tablespoon honey
Bliss Ball Recipe Method
Pulse oats, hazelnuts and salt in a small food processor once or twice until mixture resembles a coarse crumb. Add honey, chia jam, vanilla and cinnamon. Pulse until just combined, scraping down sides as needed. Mixture will be sticky.
Form mixture into a ball. Transfer to a small bowl and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Divide chilled mixture into 10 equal portions, rolling each into smooth ball.
To finish, roll each bliss ball in crushed hazelnuts.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and remove 10 minutes before serving. Makes 10 balls / 1 serve = 1 ball

Raspberry Chia Jam Recipe Ingredients
250g frozen raspberries
1 tablespoon honey
a good squeeze of half a lemon
1 tablespoon chia seeds (15g)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Raspberry Chia Jam Recipe Method
Low in fat, saturated fat and sodium, gluten-free
Place frozen berries into a small saucepan on low heat for 3 or so minutes, stirring occasionally. Once berries have thawed and started to release their juices, remove from heat and stir through honey, lemon juice and sea salt.
Stir chia seeds through last, then quickly blitz the mixture with a handheld stick blender – three quick pulses will do.
Spoon jam into a small glass jar and set aside in the refrigerator to thicken for 30 minutes or so.
Makes 1 cup = 16 tablespoons
Tip: The chia seeds will continue to swell and “set” the jam as it cools and is stored in the fridge. Freshly made it will have a looser consistency than traditional jam. Remember you can always stir in more chia seeds for a thicker consistency at any time. Add too much and you will end up with a very firm gel. Big batch refrigerator item.
Tip: substituting 250 g of other frozen berries will alter calorie count – blueberries (133 Calories), blackberries (126 Calories), strawberries (64 Calories). Adjust sweetener and chia seed quantities for substitutions – don’t assume they are the same.
