Vegan Bliss Balls!

I am a sucker for snacks, so I decided to share FOUR vegan bliss balls recipes with you! One of the first things I googled when I decided to eat plant-based was ‘vegan snacks’.
Yes, I am a sucker for snacks. And no, I do not want to change that. I just simply cannot live without them. However, when you could literally eat snacks all day, it is wise to look for more healthy varieties. Luckily Bliss Balls are the perfect solution. They are 100% raw (and vegan of course), healthy and ready before you know it, which is why I love them even more!

So, if you take a closer look at the vegan balls on the plate you see 4 beautiful types of Bliss Balls. And the good news is that in this blogpost I show you how to make each of them!

4. Raw Coconut Peanut Butter Balls (yield: 5 balls)

  • 1/4 cup natural, 100% peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 3/4 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Coating: shredded coconut

Now you know all the ingredients, lets not wait any longer with making these delicious balls!

Method

As I said before, it is super easy to make the balls of glory. Just place all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until you get a sticky dough. You can add a few drops of water if the dough is too dry.

Now you can shape the balls with your hands. Since they are all a bit sticky from the outside you can coat them by just dipping them into a cup of the coating ingredient.

After that, put all the balls in an airtight container and place them in the refrigerator for at least one hour before you serve them. Enjoy!

Note: You can store them this way up to one week, or in the freezer ever up to one month!

I would love it if you let me know if you tried these recipes and what you think of it! You can share your pictures on Instagram by using #spotavegan or tag @spotavegan.
