Recipe: Better than Bounty Bites

PALEO-FRIENDLY. GLUTEN FREE. DAIRY FREE. SOY FREE. EGG FREE. NUT FREE. REFINED SUGAR FREE. *CONTAINS FODMAPS One of my favourite childhood chocolates was the Bounty bar. I used to go between those and Cherry Ripes as my sweet treats of choice.

PALEO-FRIENDLY. GLUTEN FREE. DAIRY FREE. SOY FREE. EGG FREE. REFINED SUGAR FREE. VEGAN. *CONTAINS NUTS Ok, I’ll admit it. I’ve probably tried almost every kind of paleo/raw/vegan/gluten free/wholefood bar or bliss ball, and for the most part I have to say, I haven’t come across many that I absolutely loved and grabbed me at first bite. Usually they are all made up of the same kinds of ingredients and mostly end up tasting primarily of dates. These bliss balls are different! It took me a few goes to get the quantities right and I reckon I’ve managed to come out with a …
