Keto Bliss Balls – Lemon and Coconut

Keto Bliss Balls – Lemon and Coconut

Hands up if you were Paleo before you found keto? I certainly was, but after gaining many kilos on Paleo, I knew something wasn’t right. I don’t miss Paleo, but I sure miss bliss balls! I have been determined to create keto bliss balls ever since.

The paleo staples often used a lot of high carb ingredients like dates, honey, maple syrup and other dried fruits. Once I started learning what carbohydrates do to your body, I quickly realised my days of delicious bliss balls were over.

Creating these little babies presented a challenge, as all of the sweet things are the binding ingredients that make your traditional bliss balls so decadent.

Because of the brazil nuts, I found these a little dry on the first day but after a day in the fridge they became more moist and even more lemony (is lemony word? It is now, it’s on the internet!)

If you know bliss balls, you know you need a food processor. I use my thermomix and these are done in 10 minutes and last me all week as a great snack straight out of the fridge.

This recipe uses coconut butter.  Because it is solid at room temperature, unlike coconut oil, it helps keep them firm.

Don’t worry though, you don’t need to head out to a fancy health store to spend thousands of dollars on it, you can make it really quickly! Check out my recipe for Coconut Butter.
