These have become a staple in many people's home since their creation. I created these as a completely sugar-free alternative to the old classic bliss balls that many people unfortunately cannot tolerate. You can add any medicinal herb your body needs at the time, but I love Ashwagandha in this as it has a mild taste and I describe it to my clients as being like a 'warm hug'! I find Ashwagandha incredibly nurturing, building and calming. One of my absolute favorites. These are seriously delicious but insanely nourishing.
Salted Caramel Bliss Balls
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees C (320 degrees F), and place the macadamia nuts on a baking tray
Bake them in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown (keep an eye on them as all ovens are different, so ensure they do not go too brown!)
Place the toasted macadamia nuts in your blender, and on low speed, blend them until they turn into a nut butter (you will need to stop blending and scrape down the sides, and then keep blending)
Place all of the remaining ingredients in the blender, and blend to combine
Lay down some baking paper on a plate, container or small chopping board, and scoop out the mix into portions that you will eventually roll into balls
Place in the freezer for roughly 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll into balls
Once firm, remove them from the freezer, roll into balls, and then place back in the freezer to continue hardening
