Here’s why you will love Bliss Balls:
- They contain Brazil nuts, which you really need to have selenium. Don’t forget that!
- They contain carob powder, which is like chocolate but has three times the amount of calcium and no caffeine.
- They contain honey, which tastes great, and contains vitamins and minerals.
- They contain tahini, super healthy and super tasty.
- They contain natural vanilla, the most popular flavouring of all.
- They are coated with desiccated coconut, and if I’m going to eat anything desiccated, it better be coconut.
- They are gluten-free.
- Lastly, anything edible that promises bliss sounds good to me.
- 1 c Brazil nuts, finely chopped
- 1/4 c carob powder
- 1/4 c honey
- 1/4 c tahini
- 1/2 t natural vanilla
- 1/4 c desiccated coconut (you can lightly toast for colour, flavour and variety)
Combine all the ingredients, except the coconut, with a spoon or with a food processor. Place coconut in a small bowl. Form the nut mixture into 3/4″ balls, then coat in coconut. Store in the refrigerator and serve chilled.

- Not everyone likes the name Bliss Balls. For some people Bliss Balls conjure up images that are too suggestive for dining purposes. One friend came up with Moroccan TimBits. Do you have a name change you would like to propose?
- Valentine’s Day is coming up. Nothing says I love you better than a gift of homemade Bliss Balls and a copy of “Food for Every Mood.” Well, almost nothing…
