Equipment

  • Food processor
  • Double boiler
  • Shallow bowl
  • Parchment paper

Ingredients
 

  • 3 cups unsweetened coconut shreds ($2.20)
  • ½ cup raw cashews ($0.86)
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice ($0.36)
  • 1 lemon, zested ($0.00)
  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar ($0.75)
  • ¼ cup coconut manna ($0.80)
  • ½ cup almond flour ($0.49)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract ($0.21)

For Rolling optional

  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut shreds

Instructions
 

  • Melt the coconut manna in a small bowl in the microwave 10 seconds at a time, or by using a double boiler.
  • Once coconut manna is melted, add all ingredients into a food processor (except the extra coconut shreds for rolling).
  • Process everything until it forms a dough-like consistency, about 2-3 minutes. You may have to stop the food processor to scrape down the sides. If the mixture seems too crumbly, add more coconut manna 1 tbsp at a time.
  • Form the dough into 1-2 inch balls, then place ¼ cup extra coconut shreds in a shallow bowl or plate. Roll the outside of each ball in more coconut shreds.
  • Place on a parchment-lined pan or plate and leave it in the fridge for 30-60 minutes, or until energy balls are firm.
  • Store the bliss balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days. They can also be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months.
