Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! My Valentine’s Day plans are super exciting and include making some of my mushroom broccoli rigatoni, these chocolate bliss balls, and watching one of my favorite romantic comedies. I’m a sucker for any romantic comedy, no matter how stupid it is. I’ve seen The Notebook probably a hundred times, but To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is my favorite as of late. I know, not the most riveting Valentine’s Day, but it’s just the way I like it 🙂
I don’t know about you, but after dinner I always like to have a little something sweet to snack on. I tend not to buy tons of processed desserts or my skin will be angry with me. But, I do love making a batch of healthful bliss balls, or maybe some banana ice cream to have at night.
These chocolate bliss balls are
- High in omega 3 fatty acids (thanks to the walnuts)
- Fiber rich
- Full of antioxidants and minerals such as magnesium (thanks to the cacao)
- And SO delicious!
A few final thoughts on these bliss balls
- You can use any nut in this recipe. I chose walnuts because they’re high in the anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids which make them a fabulous food for your skin.
- You can up the protein content of this recipe by adding a scoop of your favorite chocolate protein powder.
- I suggest using medjool dates since they are soft and easy to blend, but any date will work. You may need to soak them first if they are dry.
Vegan, gluten free, these chocolate bliss balls are completely guilt free and melt in your mouth delicious.
- Add the walnuts and pitted dates to a food processor.
- Process until the walnuts and dates are mostly broken up.
- Add in the cacao powder and coconut flour and process until you get a batter like consistency.
- If the mixture is too wet, add a tsp of extra coconut flour at a time until it is easier to work with.
- Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to make rolling easier.
- Use a spoon to scoop out 1.5 tbsp of mixture at a time and roll into even balls.
- Roll in the shredded coconut, freeze dried raspberries, or extra cacao powder if desired.
- Store in the fridge for up to 1 week and enjoy!
