Welcome to my recipe for Healthy Bliss Ball Slice. It’s time for something for the health-conscious. I believe in healthy eating but it’s still got to taste good! This slice is absolutely delicious and good for your body as a bonus!
This used to be my recipe for Bliss Balls, but you know I’m all about time efficiency, so I’ve turned it into a slice. Ain’t nobody got time to stand there rolling mixture into balls and then coating in coconut. I prefer to just press it into a tray, sprinkle coconut on top, let it set, then cut it up into small squares. They are the same portion size, just a different shape. If you really want yours to be a ball, you could just “roll your own” 😉
My family loves this slice and it never lasts long in the fridge. We take it to school/work, eat it as an after-school snack, and grab pieces at the end of the day for supper with a cup of tea. I love it because it tastes naughty but it’s really not.
