Bliss balls or fat balls – whatever you might call them, these chocolate balls are the perfect snack. I love them for oh so many reasons, but namely because they are chocolate-y which is usually what I’m craving when I get home from work. They are high in fat, low in carbs, and have NO SUGAR (I use stevia but you can do what is best for you) which means I’ll get stable energy without a sugar crash while I get dinner is ready. These are made using the leftover pulp from my almond milk which reduces waste! I made almond milk from 1 cup of almonds (soaked overnight) and got about 3/4 cup leftover pulp.
So far, these are my favorite balls. They are excellently fudge-y and are not made with tons of special ingredients that I have to make a special trip to the store for, so I can whip these up even on a whim. They are super quick to make and roll into deliciously satisfying sugar-craving-busting-spheres in no time.
So basically, make them!
Chocolate Bliss Balls/Fat Balls
- leftover nut pulp (I got 3/4 from 1 cup soaked almonds)
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup cacao nibs
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 2 tbsp homemade almond milk (or other non-dairy milk of your choice)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- dash of sea salt
- sweetener of your choice (I use this stevia which I like very much)
Throw everything into a food processor and blend until a dough is formed. If it’s still dry try adding some more non-dairy milk. Use a scoop to make portions and roll into balls. Store in fridge or freezer. If storing in the freeze (as I do), let defrost slightly for a few minutes then enjoy!
If you make these (or any other recipe on the site) I’d LOVE to see your creations! Please post your pictures in the comments below or on instagram using #freshlydafna and please tag @freshlydafna.
