Healthy Brownie Bliss Balls

Healthy Brownie Bliss Balls


I always seem to get a sweet craving mid afternoon, but in order to help balance my hormones, nourish my adrenals, & avoid spiking my blood sugar levels, I always make snacks that provide protein, healthy fats, & anti-inflammatory properties.

In these brownie bliss balls I’ve used:

  • Almonds and walnuts which are a great source of healthy fats (walnuts are particulary high in anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids).
  • Cacao powder as it is a brilliant source of antioxidants that help prevent free radical damage and can help repair damage to DNA.
  • Dates for natural sweetness. Although they are high in sugar, they are also high in fiber which helps slow the release of sugar into your bloodstream.
  • Cinnamon; as well as being anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and being rich in antioxidants, cinnamon is great to add to anything sweet as it can help lower blood sugar by increasing insulin sensitivity.
  • A few drops of stevia for an extra hit of sweetness but without spiking blood sugar levels (I have insulin resistance).

Pssst, did someone say discount? I have a 10% discount code for you to use at Nkd Living: ELLEFRIZZ10

Method

  • Add everything (except the liquid) and blend
  • Add as much or as little liquid as needed for the mixture to form a slightly sticky ball
  • Take a little bit the mixture and roll it in the palm of your hand to form a ball

I store my bliss balls in the fridge and would say they are best eaten within a week.
