Vegan protein bliss balls

1 cup of paleo flour of choice (almond flour or coconut flour)

3 TBSP of cacao powder

2 TBSP of monk fruit sweetener

2 tsp of chocolate chips (optional)

1 tsp of vanilla extract

1/3 cup of nut/seed butter of choice

1/4-1/2 cup of shredded coconut for rolling

Begin by mixing the paleo flour, cacao powder, monk fruit sweetener thoroughly. Then add in the nut/seed butter of choice. I used a mixed butter with all different seeds and nuts that I enjoy. Mix it till you have a dough like consistency that holds together. Add more nut butter if it is too dry. Roll in to balls and then into unsweetened shredded coconut or any other toppings of choice like hemps seeds, coconut sugar or cacao nibs. I choose to roll them in coconut flakes and it turned out amazing! Let set in the fridge for 20 minutes and then enjoy. Makes 12 bliss balls.

1/3 cup of chia seeds
1-1 1/2 cups of nuts and seeds of your choice (almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts etc)
1/4 cup of raisins or dried cranberries
1tbsp of ground cinnamon

This is served best with coconut milk or almond milk and you can add bananas, strawberries, blueberries or any other fruit you enjoy! I don’t add sweetener because I think it’s sweet enough with the fruit but your welcome to add some coconut sugar or monk fruit if you like.
