Little morsels of yumminess, bliss balls are the perfect snack for a morning or afternoon hit of sweetness. And if you choose the ingredients wisely, they’re also a blissful way to get an energy hit.
Using a mix of healthy fats and wholesome ingredients, bliss balls can be a healthy snack, in perfectly sized little portions.
What are bliss balls?
Bliss balls, which are sometimes called protein balls, donkey drops and even rum balls depending on their ingredients are a handy treat. When made with ingredients like nuts, nut butters, dates and other slow-release energy foods, they’re a fab snack for picking up energy levels before or after working out or after school.
When they’re a little on the naughtier side, they make absolutely perfect party snacks! But even the ‘healthy’ bliss balls taste delicious enough to be served up at a kids’ party – they’ll never know they don’t contain refined sugar!
Another great reason to whip up a batch of bliss balls is that they usually only contain a handful of ingredients. The longest part of the process is rolling the balls – which is something kids love to do.
