Bliss Bites or Whatever You Want to Call ’em

Healthy and delicious sweets

If you hang out on Pinterest even a little bit or visit health websites, you're bound to come across recipes for Bliss Bites. Some people call them Bliss Balls, but there's a little too much double entendre there for me. Bliss Bites are small truffle-sized balls of nuts, dried fruits and other ingredients that make a delicious, healthy sweet treat containing no added sugar. Some recipes are really simple with just a few ingredients, like the one I'm posting here. Others are a little more involved. Feel free to experiment with what you like. I play around with substituting dried Montmorency cherries for some of the dates, and trying my favorite nuts or nut butters. Make it your own. My last batch had a couple of tablespoons of Soom's delicious chocolate tahini. Enjoy!

Bliss Bites

A delicious, healthy no bake sweet snack that is super easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts
  • 3/4 cup pitted medjool (or other) dates
  • 1-2 t. finely chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • Ground nuts, cocoa powder, melted chocolate or shredded coconut for rolling (optional)

Instructions

Toss all of the ingredients except vanilla in the food processor, and pulse/process until it becomes almost a paste. Add vanilla and pulse a couple of more times. Remove from processor and roll into whatever size balls you like. I like them about the size of a small truffle.

If you like, roll them in finely chopped nuts, cocoa powder or coconut. You can also dip them in melted chocolate! Yum!

Notes

I am not a raw food person, so I toast my nuts first. Your choice!
