Yummy choc vanilla bliss balls

It took a while, but I finally go around to sharing the recipe for these choc vanilla bliss balls!

Whether you call them bliss balls, protein balls or energy balls, I think they’re fabulous little energy bites.

 I call these bliss balls, because they taste heavenly. Although, with cacao powder, vanilla protein powder and chia seeds, energy balls would probably be a better name.

A couple of quick notes

  • These balls are delicious with coconut oil, or you can use coconut butter for a more creamy, fudgy consistency.

 

  • If using coconut butter, you may also need to add a teaspoon of hot water or melted coconut oil to bind the mix together.

 

  • They are yummy as is, or you can add your favourite nuts or dried fruits – simply push them into the balls after you’ve rolled them and before rolling in the coconut. Goji berries are one of my favourites.

 

  • They will keep well in the fridge for about a week.

 

  • Try using buckwheat or flaxseed instead of protein powder for a different flavour variation. 

 

Bliss balls and energy balls are a fabulous healthy snack anytime, but I especially love them before or after a workout. They’re just the right size!
