Description

A devious, nutty bliss ball that is low carb, veto and vegan friendly, grain and gluten free and with an optional boost of medicinal mushrooms.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups (200g) activated almond meal
  • 1 cup (250g) coconut butter
  • 1/3 cup (85mL) pure maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp good quality salt
  • 1 tsp (5mL) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (33g) cacao powder
  • 1 cup (250g) roasted almond butter
  • 2 Tbsp powdered medicinal mushrooms *optional

If you want to dip the balls in chocolate

  • 100 Dark chocolate
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. If you are living in a colder climate, soften your coconut butter first. Place jar (with lid tightly secured) in a pot of just boiled water (with the heat OFF) and stand for 10-15 minutes, or until the coconut butter has softened.
  2. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and throughly combine.
  3. Using wet hands, roll into approximately 20 balls. If you want to be precise, you can weight the balls to 35g each, to create a total of 20. Place in the fridge to set.

To make balls with a chocolate coating.

  1. melt chocolate in a heat proof bowl over pot of just simmering water. Ensure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Once melted, remove from heat and whisk together until silky. Remove balls from the fridge, and dip each one into the chocolate. Using a fork is easiest. Once you have dipped each ball, tap off excess chocolate and set on a lined baking tray. Repeat with all the balls, then set in the fridge.

STORAGE.

To store these low carb vegan bliss balls you need to consider the weather. If you live in a cold climate, simply store in an air-tight container in the pantry. If you live in a warm climate, store in an air tight container in the fridge, but always take the balls out of the fridge 10 mins before you plan to eat them.


Notes

Please read the instructions for storage options. Is is important to eat the balls at room temperature, as they contain a high level of healthy fats and are too hard straight from the fridge.

To make your own nut butter, please read the blog post.

Medicinal mushrooms can be found at health food shops and online. Some of my favourites are reishi, chaga and lions mane- but you can easily use others.

prep time does not include time to (optionally) dip them in chocolate, or setting times.
