It’s no secret that ‘Bliss Balls’ are like the new ‘healthy’ treat. I myself love a treat, I have such a sweet tooth. I’m forever baking slices and sweets for snacks.
To be honest most days I enjoy a good slice/cake and I’m not worried about it or anything, I keep pretty fit and have quite a balanced diet but I must admit when you can hit the nail on the head and combine sweet-treat with ‘good for you’ I’m all ears!
I’ve been making Bliss Balls for a few years now, well ever since I got my Thermomix (which is amazing by the way) and I always like to shake them up with different ingredients.
They are such a great way to get kids to eat a variety of nuts & seeds too – especially when you can palm it off as a treat!
I made a batch of Beauty Bliss-Balls today, I say Beauty because they are loaded with goodness that not only is good for your insides but benefits your skin too. Keep reading for the recipe, a friend of mine gave me the original recipe for these and I’ve just tweaked it a little.
These have come to be my favourite go-to healthy treat. Quick and easy to make, and quickly fix that ‘cake time’ craving, perfect with that afternoon coffee.
