O. M. G. These Salted Caramel Bliss Balls really are The Best. My friend Heidi from The Raw Treat Canteen gave me a bag of these last week and they were so freakin delicious that I begged her to share the recipe with you guys. You will love them.
Just EXACTLY the right balance of salt and sweet, these are simply divine.
Plus, they are made with pecans which not only have a great flavour, but are also rich in natural anti-oxidants and a brilliant source of fibre.
You guys should follow @therawtreatcanteen for more delicious raw yummy goodness and recipes. In the meantime, make these and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. They’re a new fave in our house.
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.
Thanks Heidi, for this gorgeous recipe x
