    THought these were great but next time goingto make 24 from mix (not 12)....Finding it har to stop at 1 so would rather have 2 small ones (not 1 big one). I used a spoon to help me make the balls.  Found it easier than rolling in both hands.  Overnight in the fridge and ready to go.  THinking might try a melon baller next time.

    Hi, I am new to thermomix and these recipes. So I am wondering if someone can shred some light. Is cacao/chia seed mixture something you buy already prepare or if your mix it yourself what are the ratios? Eg half and half???

  • These are delicious! Mixture

    Submitted by Bellarama on 13. July 2015 - 23:30.

    These are delicious! Mixture seemed a little crumbly so I added another 10g of coconut oil and whizzed for another 20 seconds. Cannot wait to feed these to my kida tomorrow in their lunch box!
