I’ve posted a recipe for healthy snowballs made from dates and coconut before but this recipe is a variation of the standard date bliss balls using coconut crunch (aka roasted coconut chips). The larger texture of coconut chips added a different texture to these bliss balls, which I quite enjoyed!
I’ve made these bite-sized, which works pretty well with the crunchy texture – if they were larger I think they’d be a bit on the messy side as the coconut chips don’t allow for an even texture.
These coconut crunch bliss balls make for a great alternative to popcorn when watching a movie! I could even imagine them working as cereal in some nut milk…
