Holiday Bliss Balls | SCD* Paleo

*This recipe was originally featured in Babiekins Magazine 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Now that the holidays are here that means our homes will be filled with plenty of sweets and treats. As a healthy alternative, we love to keep bliss balls on hand! These healthy treats are a great snack that can be prepared in advance and stored in the freezer, making them the perfect grab-and-go holiday dessert. They are packed with fiber, minerals and vitamins and are an excellent source to incorporating nuts, seeds and healthy fats into your family’s diet.

Yield: 24 balls

1 cup almonds, cashews or macadamia nuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
20 medjool dates, pitted
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of sea salt
2 Tbs coconut oil
¼ cup cocoa powder*
optional toppings: pistachios, almond slivers, dried rose petals, sea salt, dark chocolate*, cacao powder*, coconut flakes, dragon fruit powder

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Add all the ingredients to a food a processor and pulse until fully combined. The mixture should be slightly sticky and hold together when pinched between your fingers.
3. Roll into one inch size balls and roll in your desired toppings or dip in melted chocolate and then sprinkle your toppings on top.
4. Place bliss balls in the frig or freezer to set.
5. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month.
