  1. 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!

      Hi Nancy
      I’m not sure as the honey/maple syrup helps to bind them together. If you try, let me know how they go.

  2. 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!


    1. Hi Sara
      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.
