What are Bliss Balls:
Bliss Balls are the new protein/energy ball craze that provides nutrients in a bite size portion. A great way to incorporate seeds, nuts, dried fruit, vegetables, and antioxidants into your diet. You can mix and match ingredients to create any flavor combination. Bliss Balls are naturally sweetened with honey or agave, occasionally include protein rich peanut butter and are kept in the fridge. No bake, no fuss, easy to make treat that can be taken on the go.
Bliss Balls Without Dates:
I’m not a huge date fan, so I substitute for raisins in my recipe. Where many bliss balls have medjool dates incorporated into the mixture, swap out for your favorite dried fruit!
How do you Freeze Bliss Balls?
To prevent extra freezer burn and keep your bliss balls fresher longer, place several in a freezer safe zip bag, press out extra air and then add to an air tight plastic container. I can fit several bags of bliss balls into one container. Frozen balls should stay fresh for up to 6 months.
