Recipe: Almost-chocolate Bliss Balls with dates, almonds and coconut

December 2, 2017

Bliss Balls - Recipe

Craving something sweet but not too unhealthy? Then you should try these Bliss Balls stuffed with all things nice. Almost like chocolate balls, and a lot healthier than they taste.

Bliss Balls (approximately 10 pieces)

12-14 pitted dates dates

3 tbsp. Cocoa

2 tbsp. Cacao nibs

2 tbsp. dried cranberries

2 tbsp almonds

3 tbsp Shredded coconut

2 tbsp coconut oil

Mix everything in a food processor. Roll into small balls. Sprinkle with shredded coconut. Done!

The measurements are approximate. Add more coconut oil and dates, if the bliss ball mix is too dry. The cacao nibs add depth to the chocolatey flavor as well as a nice, subtle crunch, but if you’re out of cacao nibs, or they aren’t available in the grocery store, just add a little more cocoa powder.

The coconut oil can also be replaced with other kinds of oil. I ran out of coconut oil while shooting the video below, so I added sunflower oil instead, and it worked just fine. Just make sure you don’t use anything too flavored (that extra virgin truffle olive oil probably won’t work).
