O. M. G. These Salted Caramel Bliss Balls really are The Best.
Seriously, there’s a reason why this is one of the most popular posts on the blog. And also my personal favourite. When anyone asks me what recipe they should have a go at first, this is where I direct them.
My friend Heidi from The Raw Treat Canteen created these little masterpieces and has kindly allowed me to share the recipe with you. Thanks Heidi. x
Why are they so good? Well, they have the perfect balance of salt and sweet, they’re all natural and super easy to make.
Plus, because they are made with pecans they are also rich in natural anti-oxidants and a brilliant source of fibre.
You can download the recipe below (just click on the link, or the button further down).
And you can view a short ‘How To’ video on how to make them. This is my first ever video, so don’t judge me, OK, video is waaaaay out of my comfort zone 😉
1 cup medjool dates (pitted)
1 cup pecans
½ cup desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Rock Salt
More coconut for rolling
Process all the ingredients in your processor.
The ingredients will first form a crumb-like mixture and then, as the natural oils are released, it turns ‘wetter’ so that you can roll balls from it. In my food processor, it took around 2 minutes.
Then shape into balls using your palms, roll in the extra desiccated coconut and pop in the fridge to set a little and keep them there to store.
Too easy. These quantities make about 10 balls. I usually double the quantities haha.
