    Default Bliss balls recipe

    Posting here for traffic.

    Does anybody have a bliss balls recipe? I keep finding recipes with tahini or chia powder or cashew paste. I seem to have everything but these 3 ingredients, but I am certain I have made them before without these things. At my disposal is dates, agave syrup, coconut oil, almond meal, cacao powder....you get the drift. I don't really want to experiment and stuff it up. Any ideas?

    Thanks Laksa. I am just looking at the cookie dough ball recipe - Is coconut butter different to coconut oil?

    Never mind, the coconut oil jar has butter in brackets.

    I have just fashioned something out of lsa, cacao, dates, agave and coconut oil. Tastes ok, but I was a bit heavy handed with the cacao.

    You could replace the nuts in my recipe with something else?

    Yeah I could. Some sort of grain/seed maybe?

    Yum, a few more variations to try.

    My bastardised version of several recipes with a few extra liberties taken seemed to go ok at afternoon tea this afternoon. Cheers Laksa.
