No-bake bliss balls – perfect healthy energy snacks for little ones and grown-ups alike. Made with carob powder (kid-friendly) and coconut rich.
Why we Love it:
- Raw-some and sweet
- Easy and Quick
I purely enjoy making raw desserts. One because they are super tasty (and healthy) and two because I can make a plate full of eye-catchy desserts in under 20 min. The working mom in me can definitely appreciate one healthful & minimal-effort recipe.
The beauty of raw bliss bites is I can mix whatever ingredients I have left in the pantry and turn them into sweet delights. As long as I keep the proportions (‘’wet’’ vs ‘’dry’’) in line I’m in for a sweet, sweet snack.
CAROB POWDER: As we limit out 2-year old from consuming cacao products I used carob powder in this batch. I’ve made the same recipe with raw cacao instead of carob powder and they turn as delicious. So, really it’s your choice.
DID YOU KNOW: Dried (soft) plums are an excellent way to ease tummy troubles associated with constipation in kids (and grownups).
