Now I know there is a thousand Bliss Ball recipes out there, now there is a thousand and one – ha! These little beauties are very high in protein, high in good fats and low in refined sugar. They are adaptable with any nuts, seeds or dried fruits, just substitute the same quantities. You don’t even have to roll into balls, just press into a lined baking tray and place in the freezer, slice once frozen. They will last 2 weeks in the fridge and 2 months in the freezer.
