Salted Caramel Bliss Balls (Vegan, Gluten Free Option)

Hello everyone 🙂 I hope you had a good weekend. I haven’t shared my snack of the week with you in a while, so I thought it was time I share my snack for this week. I didn’t feel like making anything fancy for snack this week, so I made some simple but delicious bliss balls to keep my sweet cravings happy this week.

This is one of my favourite bliss ball combination and it is very similar to this bliss ball I made a couple of years ago but much better and this time, I didn’t add any protein powder, so it’s simply packed with healthy fats from the cashews, walnuts, hempseeds, flaxseeds and desiccated coconut and sweetened naturally with dates and sultanas. It is packed with complex carbohydrates and fibre from the rolled oats, flaxseeds and hemp seeds. I love these bliss balls and I am already planning to make my next batch in the next couple of days 😅

What’s your easy but delicious snack that you love to make? And do you also have a snack or two of the week that you make regularly? Or do you simply have fresh fruit and veggies as snacks?

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have. As always, please let me know what you think of this recipe.
