If you haven’t tried making bliss balls yet, you are really missing out. There’s a reason I call these ‘heavenly!’

They are so quick and easy to make and the perfect grab and go snack that satisfies.

Just a couple of these will fill you up and the kids will think they are candy. Coconut is the ideal way to get healthy fats and some good filling fiber to boost energy.

There is no way you will feel deprived after popping a couple of these sweet pick me ups in your mouth.

Ingredients:

1 cup almond flour

4 scoops vanilla protein powder

2 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut (separated into 1 1/2 cups and 1 cup)

the juice and zest of 1 lemon

3 tbsp coconut oil

3 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp sea salt

snowballs2

Directions:

Put all the ingredients except 1 cup of coconut in a food processor and blend until well combined.

Scoop out a heaped teaspoon of mixture and roll into a ball with hands.

Finish off by rolling in coconut to cover the outside of the ball.

Set in fridge for 1 hour to chill and set.

Enjoy this tasty little treat with no guilt and lots of pleasure.

Yours in health and happiness,
