When I awoke from a nap my husband had made cinnamon rolls from the tube. I am SO drawn to them I thought I would have a meltdown! They make me SO sick afterward. You rescued me with this recipe. The cinnamon and nuts in it hit the spot and I am very very grateful!
Yay! So glad these hit the spot when smelling delicious cinnamon rolls!
Any nutritional information?
You are welcome to use an app like MyFitnessPal to calculate the macros. I don’t publish the nutritional panel for my recipes.
Do you think these would be ok with lemon zest and stevia for the phase 1 restricted diet?
I’m not sure as the honey/maple syrup helps to bind them together. If you try, let me know how they go.
I did without honey and it was great – almond paste makes it.
Thank you so much, we are all looking for a “healthy” low Fodmap snack.
Thank you for your great recipes and for not having so many ads that they’re easy to get to.
I’m confused — the Carrot Cake Bliss Balls recipe shows 30 minutes cooking time — but it doesn’t state the temperature or method. Am using a microwave, Bain Marie or just baking? Also, cook them on what —on a cookie sheet or muffin tin?
Thanks for all your recipes and books, love love love all the help!
These bliss balls are raw so no cooking is required. I’ve used the 30 mins cooking time to reflect the time they firm up in the fridge. Unfortunately my website doesn’t allow me to change the word ‘cooking’ so I’m sorry for any confusion that caused, as it’s really 30 mins refrigeration time.
Made these today…..sooo good! Thank you for this amazing recipe!!
