Giaan’s macadamia and orange bliss balls

With both oranges and macadamia nuts growing on Giaan’s orchard in Northern NSW, this bliss ball treat makes the most of the available produce. Tasting a bit like a healthy Jaffa, each ingredient adds not only flavour but health and nutritional benefits too. It makes such a perfect snack for the whole family that a double batch is highly recommended!
