COCONUT ALMOND BLISS BALLS (low carb & refined sugar free)

Are you lookin’ for the perfect teatime treat that won't derail your healthy eating resolution?  Then look no further!  These little low-carb balls of bliss are absolutely delish and crazy simple to make.  Better still, they contain no dairy, grains, or refined sugar, but are packed with healthy fats & protein.

Ingredients for 8 balls:

  • 3/4 cup almond butter (I used crunchy)

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut

  • 1 to 2 scoops collagen peptides (optional)

  • 2 Tbsp shelled hemp seeds (gluten-free if needed)

  • 1 to 2 Tbsp coconut oil

  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • optional stevia or sweetener of choice to taste

  • optional add-ins: 2 Tbsp chia seeds, raw cacao nibs, dark chocolate chips or finely chopped nuts for extra crunch!

Directions:

  1. Put almond butter, coconut, collagen (if using), hemp seeds, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, vanilla, salt, and sweetener into blender container.  Blend until well-mixed, adding second Tbsp of coconut oil if mixture seems dry.

  2. Stir-in cacao nibs, chocolate chips, nuts or seeds as desired.

  3. Scrape sticky mixture onto a plate or parchment paper.  Roll into approximately 8 balls.  

Enjoy as-is or store in an air-tight container in the fridge for a week, or the freezer for up to 2 months.
