Oat & Goji Berry Bliss Balls

July 14, 2017
Years ago, when I started making bliss balls, most people thought I was a little cray cray 
.
"WHAT are THOSE?" they'd ask in disgust... 
.
"Ummm, they're bliss balls" I'd say "...full of protein, fats, vitamins, minerals..." .
By the time I reached "minerals" I'd be met with: .
.
"They taste AMAZING, try one" I'd say...
.
And the rest is history  Because anyone who popped one of these into their mouth instantly transformed from a hater into a lover ✨
.
And I've been bliss ballin' ever since 
.
So it goes without saying how THRILLED I am now to see so many iterations of these bliss balls popping up on social media, in cafes, etc. The only issue I have are the astronomical prices (depending upon where you buy them from!) & freshness of ingredients.
.
Too many rancid nuts/seeds + rancid oils + lots of dried sulphered fruits can turn bliss balls into bliss-less bombs for your gut ☄️
.
This can lead to an overabundance of Omega 6 oils (the naughty oil you DON'T want a lot of in your system) + high amounts of sugar and suphites which can really mess with your body & cause hormonal imbalance, thyroid issues, weight gain, etc.
.
And so...with much love I share this very easy, balanced bliss ball recipe with you in time for the weekend, because: PERFECT time to get creative in your kitchen and work on your wellness
