Coconut Cacao Bliss Balls

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.

Coconut Cacao Bliss Balls

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…!

  2. I quite like the look of these. They look very blissful indeed. Tempted to give it go, except I haven\’t got raw cacao powder, only 70% cocoa solids dark chocolate powder. Do you reckon that might work? Also do these get baked at all or does one eat them raw?

    1. Thanks for you comment! You can use the cocoa powder, and it should taste fine…it just won\’t have those lovely flavonoids & antioxidants! Let me know if you make them xx
