Allll healthy food sceptics, PLEASE behold:
Cacao coconut bliss balls. Creamy coconut combined with antioxidant + flavonoid rich cacao powder (raw chocolate powder) all mixed up with healthy-fats queen coconut oil.
Ridiculouslytasty. They taste like bounty bars, without the crap.
I can’t even really remember the quantities for these bad boys because I made them about a week ago now but it doesn’t even matter because they’re raw and amazing (they don’t need to be baked). I actually made these for a picnic. I was asked to bring something added sugar free, and looked in my cupboards for what I had and this is what came out! I didn’t actually get to go to the picnic because I was so busy moving…but at least I made these beauties :). Throw the ingredients into your food processor, roll em up into balls, pop em into the fridge or freezer for 15 minutes and then try and not eat them all in one sitting. Or do! And then make more.
These bliss balls are the perfect snack or treat! Make a batch and eat them when you’re hungry, or when you feel yourself hitting that afternoon slump. These are much better for you than any crisps, cookies or sweets your colleagues may offer you…!
