Chocolate-Coconut Bliss Balls

CHOCOLATE and COCONUT! A match made in heaven and two of my absolute favourite things to eat when it comes to sweets. I’m very much a sweet tooth and love love love dessert. But I also like to stay healthy. This is where bliss balls come in very handy. They’re refined sugar free and as a dessert, they’re not only damn delicious but they’re also a lot healthier than most desserts out there.

In saying that, I don’t believe that there is any dessert that is actually healthy. For me a dessert is a small, delicious sweet treat that I enjoy after dinner. And because it’s a sweet treat it contains sugar. And although fructose is a lot better for you than refined sugar, it is still sugar which is something I keep in mind while eating these bliss balls too. It’s a dessert and not a meal.

For this recipe you only need six ingredients and if you’re just a little bit of a health nut, you probably have all of them at home already. How convenient! Another good thing about the recipe? You’re done in ten minutes and have dessert for the next couple of days sorted!

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Let me know if you made them. I’d love to see your creations so please tag me on instagram (@nothangryanymore).

Notes

  1. If you don't have any cacao powder or can't find it in your local shop, cocoa powder works just as well. I find that cacao powder gives the bliss balls a stronger chocolate flavour, this is why I prefer using it.
  2. The bliss balls freeze really well too, in case you'd like to keep some for later.
