Healthy Chocolate Bliss Balls are vegan, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. These are a great healthy dessert or snack!
If you've followed this blog for awhile, you would know that I will sprinkle in the odd 'healthier' sweet treat here and there. I know my family and friends thoroughly enjoy these quick and easy, healthy snacks but I want to know if you, my readers, do too?
Let me know in the comments below if you want more recipes like these.
Today's recipe is healthy chocolate bliss balls. Bliss balls are essentially a 'healthy' truffle or protein ball. They are a take on the one's you can buy in the supermarket.
But why buy when you can make these at home?!
These are essentially the chocolate version of the Maple Almond Energy Bites I posted a few months ago.
As I've said a above, they are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, vegan and no bake! Just a few minutes and a food processor is needed for this recipe.
These bliss balls can also be made paleo by switching the cocoa to cacao! Also if you are vegan and don't consume honey (I know some do and some don't), you can replace the honey with maple syrup, agave or any other liquid sweetener.
