Health Benefits of Coconut Bliss Balls
Are you looking for a simple healthy snack for you and your family? Then try our easy-to-make, chocolate coconut bliss balls. They taste great, can be whipped up in minutes and can be frozen for when you need them. You’ll never want to buy anything from temptation alley at the grocery store again.
The nuts in the recipe provide you with essential fatty nutrients. They don’t contain trans-fats and will give you a big boost of energy.
The cacao in these vegan coconut balls adds a velvety flavor and tons of antioxidants.
The dates add extra fiber and minerals and sweeten the taste. They’re essential to hold everything together.
The coconut provides more valuable fiber and great taste.
Can I use nut butter instead?
Yes, if you like. You may need to adjust the number of dates that you use, so it’s not too moist. Check out our Chocolate Bliss Balls instead to get the proportions right.
Add a little coconut to that recipe and consider adding some lemon juice too. The liquid moistens the mixture a little to compensate for the dryness of the coconut.
Are these coconut bliss balls nut-free?
No. If you have a nut allergy, steer clear of this recipe and our Peanut Butter Bliss Balls recipe.
Can I eat these on Keto?
Most certainly. You’ll need to keep them as an occasional snack, though. The dates are high in carbs. Other than that, make sure that you use unsweetened cacao powder and coconut.
How long will these be good for?
Keep them in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to three months. Honestly, though, these are best eaten as soon as possible. They start to dry out a little after three or four days.
