LOW SUGAR, HORMONE BALANCING CHOCOLATE BLISS BALLS

I don't want to divulge too much because I have a full blog post coming on this top ASAP but to make a long story short over two months ago I made the choice to come off of my hormonal birth control pill after 7 years for health reasons and because of the dangerous side effects and my period hasn't come back yet, which is actually totally normal and nothing to be concerned about but because of that I have been putting a strong focus on trying to balance my hormones lately. 

One of the main things I'm doing is trying to give my adrenals a little bit of a rest and reset by cutting down on my coffee, caffeine and added sugar intake (yes even natural sugar counts as added sugar) because both of those cause stress on your adrenal system which is crucial to hormone production! So in the spirit of that I decided to put a little spin on my usual weekly batch of bliss balls and make them (WAY) lower in sugar than usual and they came out so good that I had to share!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

WET INGREDIENTS:

3 Tbsp Raw Almond Butter

1/4-1/3 Cup Unsweetened Nut Milk - depends on desired consistency

DRY INGREDIENTS:

3 Small Medjool Dates

1/3 Cup Raw Almonds

1/2 Cup GF Rolled Oats

2 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1/8 Cup Cacao Powder (can sub cocoa)

2 Scoops Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder - I used this one by Aloha

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1 Tbsp Maca Powder

0.5 Tsp Sea Salt

HOW TO

1. Add all dry ingredients into a food processor and blend until combined, then slowly add in wet ingredients until desired consistency is formed - should be thick but workable. 

2. Roll into balls and roll in cacao powder.

3. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.

ENJOY!
