Coconut bliss balls recipe with 3 ingredients | a healthy vegan snack
Yes I know, I am posting another dessert with coconut. If you love coconuts as much as I do, you will understand me! So today I have a healthy snack for you with just 3 ingredients, my favorite coconut bliss balls. I was working on this recipe for quite a while, as I was never 100% satisfied, but now I am. I tried to make it as easy as possible with just 3 simple ingredients and I couldn’t be happier with the result. This easy recipe will fix any coconut cravings, I promise! My coconut bliss balls contain only wholesome ingredients, mainly coconut, and no refined sugar. The recipe is raw vegan (if you use raw agave syrup), gluten free, grain free and paleo friendly.
Coconut bliss balls in under 10 minutes!
I already posted another recipe for healthy bliss balls on my blog which contains 5 ingredients. My coconut bliss balls contain only 3 ingredients and furthermore no grains. The 3 ingredients are coconut butter, shredded unsweetened coconut and a liquid sweetener (e.g. raw agave or maple syrup). You can put an almond inside of each bliss ball (optional) and the taste might remind you of Raffaello. If you make your own coconut butter you actually just need two ingredients, the shredded unsweetened coconut and a liquid sweetener of choice. Can it be easier and less complicated? I don’t think so! You don’t even need a blender or food processor to make my coconut bliss balls recipe, just one bowl and less than 10 minutes of your time.
Coconut bliss balls to fix your coconut cravings
If you often crave coconut, you really should try out my recipe. I made a couple of coconut recipes before like these coconut cupcakes or these coconut strawberry cheesecake bars (yes I am a little bit coconut obsessed lol) but this recipe is the most coconutty one. Did you know that coconuts contain healthy fiber and lauric acid which is so beneficial for our health? Yes they also contain a lot of fat, but it’s healthy fat which won’t make you fat. To learn more about lauric acid and its health benefits check out this article.
To sum it up, these coconut bliss balls are:
- Dairy free
- Refined sugar free
- Raw (if you use raw agave as sweetener)
- Gluten free
- Grain free
- Paleo friendly
- Easy to make
