Delicious Fudgy Bliss Balls

I love a good bliss ball and it’s even better when it is this simple to make (no blender/food processor required!!).

We always have these ingredients in the house at any given time and I love that when I feel like something yummy or need a snack, I can whip these up in 5 minutes (plus time to set). They don’t last long in our house because they are so yummy so you could double the ingredients below to make a bigger batch.

Ingredients

1/4 Cup honey (or I often do half honey and half rice malt syrup – still 1/4 cup in total though)

3/4 cup of Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter

1 tsp Natural Vanilla Extract

1 (heaped) TBSP Raw Cacao Powder

1 cup desiccated coconut

1 TBSP chia seeds

Pinch of Salt (I use pink Himalayan Rock Salt)

Method

Add honey, peanut butter and vanilla to mixing bowl and combine.

Stir in cacao until all the powder has been mixed through.

Add desiccated coconut, chia seeds and salt and combine well.

Use your hands to form small balls and place on plate or baking tray.

You can either set them in the fridge or freezer. I usually place them in the freezer as we always seem to want to eat them quickly! Once set, transfer to air tight container and store in fridge or freezer, depending on how firm you like them. I keep them in the freezer!

Try not to eat them all at once and let me know if you enjoy them. I told you they were easy and delicious.

2 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder

We usually store half in an air tight container in the fridge and the other half in a zip lock bag in the freezer.

Apricot Bliss Balls Recipe

These delicious Apricot Bliss Balls have no added sugar or preservatives. They are the perfect snack for adults and kids alike. I make a double batch and freeze half. A double batch makes about 24 balls.

Such a delicious, quick and healthy snack!

Such a delicious, quick and healthy snack!

Ingredients

* 1 cup dried apricots, soaked in hot water for 30 mins

* 3/4 cup of oats

* 1/4 cup desiccated coconut (extra for rolling)

2 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 Tbsp Coconut oil (melted)

Method

In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients blend until mixture forms a ball. Takes a few minutes.

Place extra coconut on a plate and roll mixture into small balls and roll in the coconut.

Place half in container in the fridge for approx. 45 mins. Place the other half in a zip lock bag in the freezer for later.

The problem I have with these is trying not to eat them all the day you make them. Enjoy!
