Healthy Coconut “Cookie Dough” Bliss Balls

Whether you’re looking for a healthy go-to snack in between breakfast and lunch or trying to find an alternative to an unhealthy sweets addiction, this recipe’s got you covered. Since starting my 30 Day Vegan Challenge, my focus has shifted from what I CAN’T eat, to what I CAN eat, and that shift has opened my eyes to a whole world of delicious foods.

I went on a road trip last weekend and stopped at the grocery store to stock up on some healthy snacks for the road. I grabbed some nākd Coconut Bliss Fruit and Nut Nibbles and went on my way. Besides being shocked by their price tag, I was pleasantly surprised by how yummy they were. Hudson apparently was too because he ate most of them. When I looked at the ingredients and saw how EASY they were to make and that I had ALL the ingredients on hand, I popped everything in the food processor, added a few of my own special touches and BAM, these bad boys were born. 

I think they taste like a Bounty Bar. The chewy inside is complimented perfectly by the crunchy coconut coating. They are sweet and a little bit savoury and a snack totally toddler approved by my picky eater. He now asks for these in place of a small piece of chocolate after dinner!

Hudson is obsessed with them, my husband takes them to work with him, and I snack on them in between meals and on the go! They are packed full of fruit and nuts and your body will be thanking you for grabbing a handful of these rather than a candy bar. So without any further ado, let’s see how these bad boys are made.

Ingredients for Coconut Balls:

  1. 4 Medjool Dates *
  2. 1/4 cup Cashews
  3. 1 Tbsp Raisins
  4. 2 Tbsp Coconut Flakes

Ingredients for Coating:

  1. 2 Tbsp Coconut Flakes
  2. 1 Tbsp Rolled Oats

Directions:

  1. Put ingredients for the Coconut Balls in a food processor or blender and blend well. The mixture should be very thick and sticky. (I have a really cheap blender and it forms a nice little ball of goodness)
  2. Remove the contents of the blender and roll into small balls (I like mine a little bit larger than a marble size but some people prefer larger)!
  3. Blend the coconut flakes and rolled oats for a few seconds. You want to create an oat flour, but a few chunks are always nice for texture!
  4. Place the coconut/oat mixture into a bowl and roll each ball into the mixture to coat.
  5. Eat them right away or put them in the fridge and let them harden up a bit! Enjoy!

* Medjool dates are amazing but they are a lot easier to use when they are soft. If yours are hard, just soak them in water for 15 minutes and allow them to soften up. Will make all the difference when you’re ready to blend!

Tips: The original nākd nibbles have raw cacao in them, but I made them with and without and preferred without! If you want to try them with, add half a teaspoon of raw cacao or to taste!

Always,

Alexie

  • Lazy Sundays call for even lazier Sunday evenings. Preparing for the Monday Morning Blues with my book club box from @toomuchmonday 😍 This mom/pregnancy thing is exhausting and I think I deserve a break so If anyone's looking for me, I'll be in bed reading my book with the scent of the beach in the background (compliments of a very delicious candle) munching on champagne gummy nears (YES THESE ARE A THING) and sipping some artisanal pineapple, papaya and honey tea. Jealous? Check the link in my bio to get your hands on next months box!! •

  • Since this book arrived on our doorstep, Hudson has been fascinated with it! The colors, the unicorn and the "scawwy dwagon" are his faves. The coolest part is that it's about him and totally focused around his own story. I love that he will always have this personalized book and the memories of us reading it together... or on his own. Thank you @lostmy.name for helping to create special memories for us!! •

  • I want to stop time. Right now. And hold onto you forever. The absolute best feeling in the whole world is feeling him wrap his little arms around my neck and hold on as tight as he can. I love being his mom. I love loving him. I love that he loves me even though I'm broke and can't buy him all the toys. I love that to him I am perfect. Please please please don't grow up, baby. Time flies, mama's. Happy Monday. 
P.S. how amazing is this dress from @mossandhoney!? It's not even maternity but it COULD be because it's beautiful and totally cute 😍

  • Hudson's newest obsession is watermelon juice so I've spent the morning hacking watermelons in our @vitamix blender. My hubs says it tastes like a vacation. Since we don't have any vacate planned, I guess this will do for now! Doesn't get much more summery than that, eh?! Happy weekend, peeps! •
