Sugar free nutella gut strengthening protein bliss balls


Hi everyone,

So Melrose Health was kind enough to send me a hamper of their delicious nut butters and coconut oil so I decided to get creative!

They have a variety of nut based spreads such as Almond and Chia, Hazelnut and ABC (almond, brazil and cashew), amongst others!

I figured it wouldn’t make any sense for me to not create chocolate-hazelnut flavoured concoctions when I had these ingredients staring me in the face….the resulting bliss balls that were made were absolutely delicious (according to my trusty taste-testers!)!

As always, the recipe is:

  • Low glycemic load
  • High protein
  • Sugar free
  • Prebiotic fibre rich
  • Resistant starch rich
  • Antioxidant packed

And incase you need them to be, they are also:

  • Gluten free
  • Dairy free (dependent on the protein powder you use)
  • Grain free
