Cranberry & Orange Bliss Bites


· 1 cup porridge oats

· 1/2 cup dried cranberries

· 1/2 cup almonds, finely chopped

· Zest of one orange

· 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

· 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

· 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

· A pinch of salt


· In a food blender, combine oats, dried cranberries, chopped almonds, orange zest, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Pulse until the mixture is well-combined and forms a coarse texture.

· Add honey or maple syrup and vanilla extract to the mixture. Continue to pulse until the ingredients come together into a sticky dough.

· Using your hands, roll the mixture into bite-sized balls. If the mixture is too dry, you can add a bit more honey or maple syrup.

· Place the bliss bites on a parchment-lined tray and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow them to set.

Once set, these bliss bites are ready to serve! Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for a delightful, energy-boosting snack throughout the festive season.
