Date, Fig & Chia Bliss Balls

I wanted some healthy sweet snacks to have around the house, and was immediately attracted to a recipe for Date, Apricot and Chia Bliss Balls in this month's Coles supermarket magazine.

I found I had no more dried apricots when I went to make these, so I substituted them with an equal quantity of dried figs.

I am not sure how they got 20 balls out of this mixture - their teaspoons must have been tiny.  Even when I reduced the balls to one teaspoonful, I only got 12. 

These balls were simple to make and very tasty - a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth in a healthy-ish way. 

This recipe is a keeper - easy to make from things I already had, and delicious.

Sometimes I really wonder about quantity sizes and recipes. I rarely get the same amount as a recipe states! :P
