  • Almond Butter: You can substitute almond butter with any nut or seed butter of your choice, such as peanut butter or sunflower seed butter, for variation in flavor.
  • Dried Blueberries: Ensure you use regular dried blueberries for the best texture and taste in these bliss balls. Freeze-dried blueberries can be used but they’ll have a different texture.

How To Make Blueberry Bliss Balls

Combine Wet Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, add almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Use a wooden spoon to mix until the ingredients are smooth and well combined.

Incorporate Dry Ingredients: Add almond meal, coconut flour, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of ground cardamom to the bowl. Mix until the dry ingredients are evenly combined with the wet ones.

Add Blueberries: Gently fold in the dried blueberries until they are uniformly distributed throughout the dough.

Shape into Balls: Take approximately 1 tablespoon of the dough at a time and roll it between your palms to form balls. Place the balls directly into a Tupperware or storage container.

Repeat Rolling: Continue the rolling process until you’ve used all the dough.

Chill: Place the container in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until the bliss balls have firmed up. Enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • Consistency Check: Ensure the mixture sticks together before forming balls. Add more almond butter if needed.
