orange ginger sesame bliss balls

We all need a little ball of bliss every once in a while. These little beauties are sure to put a spring in your step, great for after a yoga session or in between classes at school. My inspiration came from these  delicious lemon poppy seed bites, and turned into an orange version of bliss balls.

And its just too easy...
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • about 15-17 dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 3-4 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds + 3 Tbsp for rolling
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds

Combine walnuts and sunflower seeds in food processor and grind into a coarse meal. Add dates, ginger, orange zest, 2 Tbsp orange juice, 1 Tbsp sesame seeds, and 1 Tbsp chia seeds. Blend into a thick dough, add more orange juice if needed.

Form into little balls and roll in remaining sesame seeds. Refrigerate and enjoy anywhere, anytime.
