Bliss Balls are one of the easiest and nutritious snacks to make. These bliss balls are nut-free, making them perfect for people with nut allergies. Most schools are a no no for nuts which means you can send these snacks along to school as a healthy lunch box treat. As well as being nut free, these bliss balls are also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I have used dates, cacao, orange rind and vanilla to sweeten them.

    Enjoy, J&L x
