Although I’m late sharing this recipe (I shared the picture last week on Instagram), it’s truly better late than never because these are worth making ANY time of year.
I made several types of bliss balls throughout the holidays because it was nice to have a quick and satisfying snack to pull out of the fridge during all the wrapping, shopping, visiting and baking. The strawberry bliss balls were my absolute favorite and taste just like little muffin bites! Even better that these are no bake and super quick and easy to make.
What you need:
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup quick oats (finely ground before hand in a food processor)
1 and 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
Coconut flakes for topping
In a high speed blender or food processor, blend the sunflower seeds until smooth. You may have to scrape the sides a few times between blending.
Add your strawberries, oats, maple syrup, vanilla and half of your coconut flour into the blender. Blend until smooth, scraping the sides occasionally.
Feel the mixture and if it’s too sticky to ball up easily, add the rest of the coconut flour and blend.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and roll into little balls (the size of donut holes). You can roll some or all into the coconut flakes as topping. I did half in the coconut flakes and left half bare.
Makes about 16-18 bliss balls.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 5 days. I enjoyed these even more after they sat in the fridge overnight.
