The MyMT™ KITCHEN: Healthy Bliss Balls from Louise at Holcombe Clinic

Louise is a Physiotherapist and business owner of Holcombe Health Clinic, a holistic Physiotherapy practice south east of London. She is also an Affiliate Practitioner with MyMT™. This means that she does one-on-one coaching of the MyMT™ programmes for women in her community, wrapping them around her own coaching and exercise practice in a programme called HOW2MENOPAUSE.

These amazingly, healthy Bliss Balls, come from her. 

“The combination of my own journey and the need to better assist women in the Holcombe community, led me to developing my own menopause solutions lifestyle programme called How2Menopause, in conjunction with the delivery of Wendy’s online 12 week programmes. This programme includes our expertise in breathwork, pilates, strengthening classes and of course, joint health! 

I’m so excited to be able to work with women who visit our clinic as an Affiliate with MyMT™ and we are now offering this bespoke support package to our ladies. The results have been awesome so far, so I am spreading the word. I am now on a mission to help as many ladies as I can and will continue to learn and absorb.”

HOLCOMBE CLINIC BLISS BALLS

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 4 tbsp milled flax seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g dates
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • Ground cacao nibs for coating

METHOD: 

  1. Blitz everything except the cacao nibs in a food processor or chop finely and mix until you have a mixture that isn’t too dry nor too sticky.
  1. Roll into balls, roll in the ground cacao nibs for that chocolate hit, and/or roll in shredded coconut, then place them on a lined tray. Once the mixture is rolled, then place the tray in the fridge for about an hour, so they firm up. 

SWAPS

  • Change the almonds for hazelnuts or cashews
  • Change the flax seeds for chia seeds
  • Change the peanut butter for almond butter or cashew butter
  • Change the cacao nibs for cocoa powder or dip them in melted dark chocolate (70% minimum cocoa) after cooling

The challenge is not to have too many all at once! One is sufficient! Dark chocolate is full of flavonoids, which helps to reduce hot flushes. The benefits of dark chocolate are multiple, because this important compound is high in non-heme iron, magnesium and quercetin – a compound with anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular benefits. 

I hope you enjoy making and eating this delicious chocolate treat from Louise and her team at Holcombe Clinic in the UK.
