These cranberry coconut bliss balls are heavenly! These two-bite morsels are a cross between dense, chewy cookie dough and crunchy granola bars-minus the butter and refined sugar and flour. The best part of all? They don’t require any baking!
One of the most popular items on Instagram and Pinterest feeds are raw bliss balls. Why? Firstly, they are the epitome of the no bake, no fuss, no prep snack generation that practically anyone can make (even my kids!).
Secondly, they are much healthier than packaged foods which are usually loaded with refined sugars and empty calories. Thirdly, they are easily transportable…and just plain ole’ delicious!
Bliss balls are a made with a combination of dried fruits and nuts, seeds, oats and/or puffed rice and natural sweeteners, such as maple syrup or honey. You can personalize the recipe by opting for additional flavourings which can vary from chocolate and coconut to cherry and carrot. Nut butters add creaminess to these decadent treats and you can sneak in superfood combinations like chia, hemp, or flax seeds.
Preparing these two-bite treats requires only about 10 minutes (plus chilling time in the fridge) and are practically effortless-just roll into a ball, and done!
It comes as no surprise that these bliss balls can actually be called a bona-fide healthy snack since they are made with natural sweeteners and wholesome ingredients, so go ahead and eat one, or two, or more!
