Want a go-to snack that tastes just like dessert?  Then give these bliss balls a go!

Lately my clients have been loving this delicious and healthy snack, as it makes for the perfect 3pm pick me up when you need something to tie you over until dinner but are craving something sweet!  Make a batch on the weekend, keep in the fridge or freezer (depending on your preferred chewiness) and enjoy throughout the week.
