Bliss Balls were my first sweet recipe I made 10 years ago when I just changed my diet. Ev­ery­one around me loved them so much, that I now make them all the time. Back then, no one re­ally knew about su­per­foods but now all the in­gre­di­ents are de­li­cious much eas­ier to find. Th­ese ver­sions are in­spired with Per­sian spices but if you can’t find un­salted raw pis­ta­chios, you can use any other nuts you like and have on hand.

PER­SIAN BLISS BALLS WITH APRI­COTS, PIS­TA­CHIOS AND ROSE­WA­TER

80 g apri­cots, dried (sul­fur free)

70 g med­jool dates (pit­ted)

70 g pis­ta­chios (raw and un­salted)

30 g des­ic­cated co­conut and more for dec­o­rat­ing/serv­ing

1 ta­ble­spoon rose­wa­ter

½ tea­spoon cin­na­mon

½ tea­spoon or­ange zest

1 small pinch sea salt

1 Process the pis­ta­chios into a fine flour in your food pro­ces­sor.

2 Add the des­ic­cated co­conut to the food pro­ces­sor and mix un­til com­bined.

3 Add all the other in­gre­di­ents and process un­til mix­ture be­comes a loose dough that is start­ing to stick to­gether.

4 Roll into 1-inch balls, add des­ic­cated co­conut if de­sired, and chill be­fore serv­ing for best re­sults. Store chilled.

The scent of a rose will bring a smile to your face. Roses and their by-prod­ucts have many ther­a­peu­tic ben­e­fits with rose wa­ter in par­tic­u­lar hav­ing anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties per­fect for trou­bled skin. De­vour the pure scent (not ar­ti­fi­cial fra­grances) and no­tice how amaz­ing you feel.
