‘Tis the season for baking! In the spirit of the holiday season, we wanted to share with you our favorite *healthy* treat: Vanilla-Coco Bliss Balls! Inspired by our heritage scent, these bliss balls will have you coming back for more and more! Read on to find the recipe and get blissing!
We wanted to pay tribute to our most-loved Bare Republic scent, Vanilla-Coco, so we decided to get inspired in the kitchen! The end result? Bare’s Vanilla-Coco Bliss Balls! Now we know this is no Great British Bake Off, but these bliss balls are delicious and a better for you option when you’re craving a sweet treat! Easy to make and delicious? Let’s get baking!
This recipe is super simple and only requires six ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry! Dates, cashews (or another nut of your choosing), rolled oats, shredded coconut, vanilla extract and nut-based milk are all you need to complete this sweet treat.
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 1 cup of cashews (or another nut of your choosing)
- ¼ cup of shredded coconut
- 1 cup of medjool dates
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons of nut-based milk
Before beginning, make sure to soak your dates in hot water to soften them up! Once softened, remove the pits and set them aside for later use.
In a high-power blender, or food processor, begin by adding your oats and cashews and grind down to a fine powder. Make sure to scrape the sides of the blender/processor to ensure all the ingredients are mixed together evenly!
Next, add in the remainder of the ingredients, including the de-pitted dates you had set aside, and blend until properly mixed. You are looking for a smooth and sticky consistency so continue to add your nut-based milk to achieve the prime consistency!
Once everything is combined, use a spoon and your clean hands to roll spoonfuls of the mixture into bite-sized balls. Pro tip: keep some shredded coconut out to sprinkle on the balls for extra flavor and crunch! After rolling all the bliss balls, pop them in the fridge or freezer to set them for about 30 minutes and then dive in and enjoy!
