I have to admit, it has been a while since I have taken out my food processor and put it to good use. I was in need of a nutrient dense snack while on the balance cleanse that is also low in sugar and high in healthy fats. These Orange Cranberry Bliss balls came to the rescue and came together in 5 minutes. Really, you have no excuse not to make them.
I have been really into the orange cranberry combo lately, especially because blood oranges have been in season. You have the option to use a regular orange or a blood orange for this reason. I also recently found unsweetened cranberries on Amazon and have been using them in and on everything. Finally, dried cranberries without all the unnecessary added sugars.
The great thing about these delicious snack balls is that they are free of nuts (except for coconut), so in case you have any allergies you are in luck. And if not, no matter, these are amazing and you should make them immediately. Here is how you can DO IT.
↠1 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
↠3/4 cup each of raw sunflower and pumpkin seeds
↠3/4 cup coconut butter (soft, not hard)
↠1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
↠3 tbsp. unsweetened dried cranberries
↠juice from 1 blood orange (or regular orange)
↠zest from one blood orange (or regular orange)
↠2 tbsp. raw honey
Place all ingredients in your food processor. Process on high until clumps form. Stop and scrape down the sides if needed. Roll into balls. I was able to make one dozen. Note that if the balls crumble when you try and roll them, place in refrigerator for an hour to chill and then roll. ENJOY!!
