Low Sugar Brownie Bliss Balls

I always seem to get a sweet craving mid afternoon, but in order to help balance my hormones, nourish my adrenals, and avoid spiking my blood sugar levels, I always make snacks that provide protein, healthy fats, and 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 LivingELLEFRIZZ10

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup almond meal or oats
  • 7 medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 3-4 tbsp water/ nut milk
  •  Nkdliving stevia drops to taste (I used the caramel flavour)
  • Dessicated coconut for coating


  • 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
  • Roll the ball in dessicated coconut
  • Repeat until all the mixture is used up

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