I’m all about quick, easy snacks.
These are both of those things, plus they’re totally delicious.
These little gems are gluten-free, paleo, keto-friendly, vegan, loaded with healthy fats and protein, and packed full of superfoods.
They’re the perfect snack for any time of day – I love eating a couple before my workouts to give me a quick energy boost!
Any kind of protein ball or sweet treat is a great way to hide greens… so that’s what I did! I added a heaping scoop of Amazing Grass greens powder, and if anything, it makes them even more yummy! (This recipe isn’t sponsored by them in any way, but I do love their products. I used their protein powder in this recipe as well.)
Keep in mind that these are totally customizable….
Only have chocolate protein powder in your cupboard? Great! They’ll still be just as delicious (if not more, especially if you’re a chocolate lover!).
You can add other spices like ginger or cardamom to make things more interesting, or even some dried nuts and seeds to add texture.
The “bliss bite” world is your oyster!
Anyway, this recipe takes less than 10 minutes and one bowl to make, and yields about 10-12 bliss bites.
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 cup almond flour
2 tsp flax seed meal
1/4 cup tocotrienols
1 scoop greens powder (I used Amazing Grass “Holiday Cookie” flavored greens powder, but any mild greens powder should work just fine)
1/4 cup raw pecan butter (or any other creamy nut/seed butter)
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp stevia or monk fruit (optional – they’re pretty sweet as is, especially if you used a flavored greens powder)
1 tsp cinnamon
- Using your hands or a large spoon, mix the ingredients thoroughly until well-combined. The “dough” should be very thick, but should stick together easily so you can form it into little balls. If it’s still crumbly, add more nut butter 1 tbsp at a time until it sticks together.
- Roll the “dough” into 1.5 x 1.5 inch balls – you can really make these any size you want – I like them to be about 4 bites worth.
- Line the bliss bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight. For a faster option (I do this a lot) place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, then place in the fridge to store.
- Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
