Chocolate Cashew Bliss Balls (Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan)

Who doesn’t love bliss balls (protein balls, energy bites, you-name-it)? They are the perfect little snack to accommodate your afternoon coffee, to grab when you need to satisfy that sweet craving or simply provide you with little bit of extra energy when needed.

However, most of the bliss balls you get in cafes and shops are just jampacked with sugar and often other unnecessary ingredients too. To be clear, I’m not following a keto lifestyle or saying that all carbs are bad for us. But I do agree with the claim that we eat many more carbs than we need to. And it’s actually super easy to overdo it even with the healthy treats. Because most of them are based on dates or other dried fruits which are super high in carbs and will most likely leave you even hungrier than before. That’s why it’s always good to read labels. Or even better – make the goodies at home. Because there can’t be any easier treat to make at home than bliss balls.

So here are the Lime Bites (Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan), perfect little treat after your Christmas lunch or just during the day to hush the hanger (because no one wants to be hungry and cranky during Christmas).
