Do you find yourself reaching for a chocolate bar or biscuit mid-afternoon? Normally by that time in the day, we are feeling a bit zapped! When you feel like you need a pick me up, why not reach for a power-packed bliss ball instead.

Bliss balls (or raw balls) are healthy snacks with just the right ingredients to boost your energy, and they are a perfect size too! Lovely with an afternoon cuppa, bite-size balls that will fuel you up without weighing you down.

Firstly the best things about bliss balls are ;

  • They are so quick and easy to make
  • They are healthy so make a perfect snack
  • They fill you up without weighing you down
  • Making your own snacks means “zero waste” so no plastic packaging which means no impact on the environment

Cacao is a superfood

Also, these energy balls are made with cacao. Cacao is chocolate, but in a raw form, so it’s not the same as chocolate. It hasn’t been roasted, but rather cold-pressed and there is no added sugar.

Not only that but cacao is also a highly nutritious food, high in antioxidants, nutrients, and also healthy fats. Cacao also contains only a small amount of caffeine compared to normal chocolate, which means you can eat it before bed too!

As well as all of that, I love the fact that these balls have a hint of orange in them. They remind me of Terry’s Chocolate Orange bars that I used to eat as a child!
