Chocolate and Orange Bliss Bites…
…(or Slump Balls, as they’ve come to be known in my kitchen) are so easy to make. All you need is a blender and a spare minute or two.
Do you get that afternoon slump when all you really want to do is crawl back into bed? The eyes have glazed over and the brain has turned foggy. These are my go to slump balls, my daily dose of energy on a tiring afternoon.
I’ve a real sweet tooth but know that if I open a packet of biscuits I won’t just stop at one. My will power is non existent in the afternoon. Rather than gorging out on an entire packet of biscuits; the dates, cacoa powder and maple syrup are just what my sweet tooth needs.
Packed with plenty of energy boosting nutrients you’ll even be achieving one of your five a day.
