Plantiful Sunday: Blissful date balls

Does anyone else laugh at the term “balls”? I’m so mature, I know. IN OTHER NEWS..

Who doesn’t want to snack on complete, delicious goodness which also happens to be raw, vegan, easy to make and packs the most nutritious punch ever? Not to mention, these taste SO naughty, but are totally guilt-free. These bliss balls are 3 ingredients.. YES. That’s it. No, I’m not lying.

3-ingredient bliss balls include:
1 cup of dates (pitted, duh)
1 cup of nuts (I used peanuts for that peanut butter flavor because… it’s life)
1/2 cup of raw cacao

How to:
1)Dump everything into a food processor until it all blends together like a paste
2) Roll into bite size balls
3) Coat in toppings of your choice (I used coconut sugar, coconut shreds and raw cacao) or not. It’s up to you. Your balls, your decision.

BOOM. Literally, the easiest things to make. Naturally sweetened by dates, bursting with that peanut-buttery flavor and packed with absolute nutrition. Health IS wealth. They’ll last in the fridge for atleast a week but trust me, they won’t hang around for that long. YOU’RE WELCOME.

Plantcakes for breakfast

Traditional pancake mixes contain ingredients that are unnatural and even worse… unseen mold can grow in there causing pancake-lovers to experience difficulty breathing and other internal and sinus nastiness. I’m NOT okay with that. Sorry to be the grim reaper of your life, but that $2 box of pancake mix is not worth it. So, make your own!

Okay, I’ll have to admit, I didn’t coin the term “plantcakes”.. But how clever is it to describe pancakes made completely out of plant-based ingredients? Not to mention, these plantcakes take half the time to cook than traditional pancakes.

Plantcakes:
Blend 1 banana, a heaping cup of oats, cinnamon & almond milk to a flour-like consistency. Cook them like traditional pancakes (bubbles form then flip).

Chocolate sauce:
Blend 4 dates, 1 tablespoon of raw and organic cacao and a bit of water.

Lastly, top your stack together, add some fruit & seeds and make it as pretty as you want before gorging into it like a wild animal. Don’t say I didn’t tell you these were addicting!
