Every year on April 25th, Australians and New Zealanders commemorate their military service men and women for the sacrifices they made. It is has been said that the wives of the soldiers sent ANZAC biscuits to soldiers abroad because the ingredients didn’t spoil easily, and they kept well on the transport via ships. These days the “biscuits” made are nothing like the original biscuits that used to be sent overseas but here in Australia they are affectionately made each year by everyone!
Our Spin on Things
We love nothing more than to take traditional food and put our healthy spin on it! We’ve developed these bliss balls inspired with all the flavour of ANZAC biscuits, in delicious bite sized balls. There is no baking involved, which makes them quick + easy to make! They’re also a perfect grab and go snack to get you through the dawn service and beyond!
With so much goodness, you can be sure you are nourishing yourself with each ball!
- There’s quality protein from the chia seeds and almond meal.
- The tahini and chia seeds provide an excellent source of calcium
- The maca powder provides a boost of energy and assists with balancing your hormones
- They healthy fats from the coconut oil are easily converted into energy for the brain and the body!
Healthy never = boring
And don’t you worry – even though they are jam packed with health benefits – they also taste DAMN GOOD! There’s something incredible about the flavour – one bite and your taste buds will sing! The end result is a caramelly, almost buttery like taste that makes you go back for another and another and another!
We hope you enjoy these delicious Anzac Inspired Bliss Balls.
