Notes

  • It is a really good idea to watch my recipe video before cooking these as the technique I have used for the orange/juice is important. We actually use ½ of a juiced orange and the rind.....not the orange juice from the orange. 
  • Also please note that I use ½ of the coconut oil at one stage in the recipe and the remaining ½ at another stage, this is to ensure a consistent mix of the balls without being too wet or dry. 
  • The balls would be too moist if you used the juice as well as remaining oil and rind. Keep the freshly squeezed juice in the fridge for breakfast!! 
  • These bliss balls can be frozen for up to a month 
  • The energy balls will keep in the fridge for 2-3 weeks in an air tight container
