Walnut and Cardamom Bliss Balls

I surprised myself by coming up with a new recipe this week while assisting on the Bio-dynamic Craniosacral Therapy course here in Vancouver. I generally take it really easy while doing these trainings as I still tend to get worn down quite easily-although it is much better than a year ago! Love the GAPS diet, what a lifesaver!

  • 1 1/2 c rough chopped hazelnuts
  • 32 fresh dates, chopped
  • 6 T coconut oil or butter
  • 3-4 cardamom pods, seeds removed and crushed
  • pinch salt

It is important to use fresh dates, these are not the medjool dates. They are short, moist and very delicious. I de-seed the dates and chop them, chop the walnuts and grind my cardamom seeds, and then mix with my hands to get them fully encorporated. Once mixed, roll into balls and roll in either coconut or finely chopped nuts.

It is important to add in the fat to this recipe to get the full rich mouth-feel.

These are to die for. And yes, they are GAPS or SCD diet friendly as well as being grain and gluten-free to boot.
