|No-Bake Bliss Balls|
My Coconut Peanut Butter Bliss Balls
I had a craving for no-bake cookies today. After perusing the internet for a good bit of time, I had found Paleo and Keto recipes for Bliss Balls. Many of the recipes called for ingredients like protein powder or chia seeds - none of which I have on hand. However, many Bliss Ball recipes call for items that I have in my kitchen.
For an actual recipe, you'll need to follow one of the links below. But clearly, Bliss Balls do not require a recipe. I made mine using shredded coconut, peanut butter, oats, vanilla, and cinnamon.
I used approximately:
1/2 cup coconut
1/3 cup honey peanut butter
1/4 cup oats
1 tsp. vanilla
a couple of shakes of cinnamon
I did not use a food processor (or my Nutri-Bullet) which might have made the consistency of this snack a little different. But combining it with a fork worked well.
I formed the "dough" into balls - approximately tablespoon sized. Then refrigerated.
A few random items:
- As one recipe writer noted, do not try to roll this into balls. Rather, just squeeze them into ball shapes (They are slightly too crumbly to roll into balls)
- The longer they are refrigerated, the better they taste! The consistency changes a bit - a little more "cakey"
- Despite having a good bit of peanut butter, these were not sticky or mushy
