A while back posted this recipe for Fig & Cacao Bliss Balls. It was a big hit! People are really loving this recipe on my YouTube channel (it has received almost 1,500 views to date) so today I am sharing with you another one of my favorite recipes for bliss balls. These are so easy to diversify. You can make them a million different ways.
What are bliss balls? They are basically a really healthy plant based treat/snack that are perfect for munching on during the day in between meals. It satisfies your sweet tooth while also giving you lots of nutrition as well.
They can be made out of any whole plant food but figs and dates are usually one of the main bases as they are a perfect binder and thickener for many vegan and plant based recipes, especially desserts. Many people who eat a vegan/whole food plant based diet don't consume any oils so if you are one of those people, you can substitute the coconut oil for any natural nut butter. I would recommend using almond butter or peanut butter if you do.
Unlike the other bliss ball recipe, I decided to roll these in some fun toppings: cacao, shredded coconut, and a chocolate drizzle. My favorite one is the cacao! So delish!
These bliss balls are the perfect light bite!
