These chocolate coconut almond bliss balls are a crazy easy paleo friendly and vegan dessert made using only the yummiest + cleanest ingredients – chocolate, coconut, maple syrup and coconut oil are combined to make this decadent yet healthy treat!
I’m fairly sure I know exactly what you’re thinking – do we really need one more treat recipe? I’m going to go ahead and say that yes, when it’s a recipe for these chocolate coconut almond bliss balls, the answer is most definitely yes.
Because this is not your ordinary treat recipe. These little bliss balls are:
A) Dairy free
B) Naturally sweetened
C) Made with only 6 ingredients, two of which are vanilla extract and sea salt
D) Waaaaay easier to make than they seem (read: option to appear fancy AF at your next gathering without doing anything more difficult than making the easiest cookie recipe)
BOOM. So much more to offer than your ordinary truffle.
Being from the midwest, green bean casserole was always a very big part of our Thanksgiving spread. Right up there with my grandma’s famous layered raspberry jello whipped cream dessert 😉 Okay, so the times have changed and what fills our plates on Thanksgiving has changed with it, but there are some dishes that I refuse to say goodbye to. And so, healthier paleo-friendly and vegan versions are made! Top of that list? This grain free paleo green bean casserole. It’s insanely delicious, vegan friendly, and free of all the junky ingredients that are usually in this famous casserole.
This was on last years menu as well, but I didn’t have the recipe fully developed, and so I hung onto it just waiting for this year’s festivities.
Green bean casserole can be a challenging casserole to make gluten free / paleo / vegan since most cream of mushroom soups (the standard base of green bean casserole) are thickened with cream and and flour. Not so paleo or vegan friendly…
But in the name of eating clean AND enjoying every minute of it I think it’s worth re-working this classic dish. Especially during this time of year when the struggle to eat for you health and enjoy shared meals is so real.
This green bean casserole is here to tell you that you can both indulge in your favorite dishes and stay on track with your health and well-being
Ahhh I’VE MISSED YOU! How did we go from rocking it out with easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese last week to not talking until now?! It’s my bad, I know. Somewhere in between travel and catching the worst head cold I’ve had in forever I just sort of lost some traction.
It happens, sometimes.
The season change struggle is real.
But it’s nothing we can’t fix with some creamy pumpkin turkey chili. Don’t ya think?
I’ve been thinking about making this soup for a very long time. Dreaming of it’s creamy, cozy pumpkin perfection. And last week, mid-cold, post vacation vibes, it was time to bring it to our dinner table.
And it it was literally perfect.
Like a so-totally-november-I-can’t-believe-it’s-already-snowing-luscious gift to ourselves. Because we all know the power of coming home to a delicious bowl of soup when the temperature starts to drop and changing leaves turn into falling flakes. I know Seattle might be a little ahead of other parts of the country on this one but I know you still feel me.
Soup = the best part about cold weather. Especially when it involves pumpkin.
