This is my copycat-version of a bliss ball that I discovered at a local juice bar. These little guys taste amazing! They're raw, vegan, gluten-free, and fabulous. Maca root is a powerful superfood! These little bites pack a wallop and taste phenomenal! Kind of like a cardamom-laced salted caramel snack. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Put cashews and salt in a food processor fitted with the S-blade; pulse until cashews are finely chopped but not a paste. Add dates, maca powder, cardamom, and olive oil; blend until mixture is evenly combined and holds together.

  • Shape mixture into 10 to 12 balls and refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If you have cashew meal, you can substitute that for the cashews and save yourself the step of grinding cashews.

They should last at least a week, unless you eat them all first! They also keep well in the freezer. Just thaw for a few minutes before eating.

I will make these again but I will definitely dial back the cardamom maybe just to one teaspoon. It was way too strong for me and almost tasted like a mouthful of perfume. Read More
