Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls (Allergy Friendly)

These no-bake bliss balls are a delicious treat and very moreish.  They are dairy and gluten free and don’t contain any of the most common allergens.  The taste reminds me of Bounty bars – coconutty and chocolately.  It’s so quick and easy to whip up a batch of these snack balls.  They are a favourite of everyone in my family (although I wouldn’t give them to a very young baby).  They also contain no added sugar, just the natural sugars in the dried fruit.  They are good if you need a chocolate fix in a hurry!

You don’t need to be too precise with the measurements, I just use a measuring cup.  You just need to chuck all the ingredients into a food processor, whizz it for a few minutes, and then make the resulting mixture into balls with your hands, so it’s ideal for impatient kids to help with.
