Kora Bellisimo Balls: A surprisingly good failure!

I recently stumbled upon the recipe for these Bellisimo Balls on Miranda Kerr's Kora Blog. Given that I have pretty much quit sugar (with the exception of fruit), the ingredients sounded good and ticked boxes. The recipe Author (and "Clinical Nutritionist"), Sally Joseph also has a fantastic website and blog. Sally says: "Packed with healthy plant protein, thanks to the nuts and seeds, they are a good source of healthy fats with the coconut oil and tahini, that won’t end up on your hips! My favourite ingredient – raw cocoa powder and nibs – provides a rich source of magnesium and antioxidants, as well a delicious chocolatey flavour."

(above) This is what their Bellisimo Balls looked like. Mine? Not so much. I couldn't, for the life of me, get them to stick together. Which, as it turns out, isn't such a bad thing. Here's what happened next:

(above) I ended up storing the crumbly Bellisimo mixture in a tupperware in the freezer and I am thoroughly enjoying it spooned over fruit for an after dinner snack or even for the occasional breakfast (shown above with Fresh figs and blueberries)!

Even if I COULD get these to stick together, I think I would continue using it as a crumbly topping rather than balls. Try it and see (who said failure was a bad thing!). A few TT tips: The first time I made them, I used the cacao nibs, the second time I simply left them out (without substituting anything). As someone who likes (but wouldn't die for) chocolate, I think I prefer them without - they still have cacao powder, so the hint of chocolate is still there. Also, I didn't use the green powder in them, just the rice malt syrup.

  5. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
