Raw Cocao Orange Bliss Balls

Super easy to make and a healthy sweet with no added sugar.

*Just a quick note – I often don’t give exact measurements, a bit more when baking, but I encourage you to make it to your taste. So yes you do need to keep trying as your preparing until you feel confident with your formula. Hopefully something never tastes exactly the same twice. To me creating food is personal, creative, exploratory, fun, open to interpretation and experimental. So if your looking for an exact science, you might be disappointed. However if your looking for recipes that are healthy and mostly:RSF (refined sugar free), DF (dairy free), GF(gluten free), and vegetarian were you get enjoy the process, you’ll probably be happy.

These Bliss balls are great as a sweet protein snack or a small treat.
