Delicious No-Bake Anzac Bliss Balls
Anzac Day is just around the corner and this year I decided to bring back one of my most popular recipes ever – No-Bake Anzac Bliss Balls. These tasty treats are a modern spin on the old tried-and-tested Anzac Cookie except this time around you don’t even have to turn the oven on. Winning!
So if you feel like mixing it up this year and celebrating Anzac Day in style then you’ll love our tasty new take on a Kiwi classic.
Oh and just in case you don’t live down under Anzac Day occurs every year on 25 April and commemorates Australians and New Zealanders killed in war and also honours returned servicemen and women. The date itself marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers – the Anzacs – on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915.
Take a look at how simple these delicious little morsels are to make in my short video below.
- 2/3 cup almonds or almond meal
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup shredded coconut
- 2 Tbs white chia seeds
- pinch sea salt
- 1/3 cup Chelsea Golden Syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tablespoons water
- 1 cup shredded coconut, extra, for rolling
- Place the almonds, oats, coconut, chia seeds and salt in a processor.
- Process until roughly chopped.
- With the motor running, add the golden syrup, vanilla and enough water so that the mixture clumps together and can be rolled into balls.
- Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls.
- Place the extra coconut in a bowl.
- Roll the balls in the coconut to coat.
- Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm.
- Balls will last at least a week in the fridge.
- They can also be stored in the freezer for up to 1 month. Allow to thaw slightly before serving.
