Coconut-Macadamia Bites

Two of our favorites, coconut and macadamia nuts, combine to make these raw Coconut-Macadamia Bites for a filling snack.

Today’s recipe is an adaption of my popular Raw Caramel Slice recipe – one of the first recipes I shared on Becomingness.

It is still my favourite dessert recipe and it made me wonder if it would work as a bliss ball.

I am a big fan of healthy snacks that are easy to make and these bliss balls fall right into the easy to make category! They only take 15 minutes to make or even quicker if you are making them in your thermomix.
