We’ve teamed up with our friends at Thrive Market to bring you this drool-worthy low carb energy balls recipe! Featuring our energy-boosting Creamy Caramel MCT Oil and just 2g of low-glycemic sugar per ball, these convenient, bite-sized snacks will conquer your mid-afternoon hunger pangs and fuel you with steady energy to make your day not just great, but blissful!
How to Make the Best Bliss Balls:
- USE CREAMY CARAMEL MCT Oil: Not only does the dairy-free, Creamy Caramel MCT Oil provide the delectable caramel flavor for these bliss balls, but it’s also the key ingredient that will give your body a burst of energy! Within minutes of consuming, your liver converts MCTs into ketones for steady energy without the crash!
- USE UNSALTED MACADAMIA NUTS: Macadamia nuts come in both salted and unsalted options so make sure to use the unsalted variety for this recipe!
- ADJUST YOUR SWEETNESS: Though this recipe calls for 2 tbsp of honey, feel free to adjust the amount to fit your dietary preference. If you're keto, you may want to skip the honey or swap it out for a monk fruit-based sweetener like Lakanto.
