Almond and Fig Balls …

Almond and Fig Balls 001

I’ve already shared a number of different recipes for Bliss Balls and here is yet another variety to add to your collection.

I haven’t experimented with, or tried, Figs in the past so I was really keen to create a recipe that used them.  For this recipe I used dried figs, purchased at Woolworths, and the result was a beautiful, sweet snack that everyone enjoyed.  These are ideal for lunchboxes as well but do remember to check your schools “Nut Policy” as these contain ground almonds.

  1. I love making bliss balls! I gave my trainer some of my last batch and waited for baited breath so hear what she thought of them. Using fig is a great idea!

    • I love making them too … I always have some in the fridge as they’re great little snacks for the kids after school and hubby enjoys a couple after he’s been for a run or swim. The figs are a great addition in these ones.
