Nut-Free Bliss Balls (GAPS, Paleo, SCD)



I confess, I have gone a little crazy with the Bliss Balls this week.  I think I've made four versions this week; I'm a little obsessed.  But now that I've created this nut-free version, I think I'm done for a while. :)
I posted the recipe for a Coconut version on my facebook page, which prompted several people to ask for a nut-free version.  So here it is!  Made with dried dates and apricots, I think it's my new favourite.  
I've included a picture of the coconut and apricots that I buy.  They both have no added sulfur or preservatives.  I buy them online from www.mypaleo.com.au.

  • Warm coconut butter and coconut oil in the microwave to melt.
