Lemon Bliss Balls

Print

These tangy but kid-friendly balls are heaven. They satisfy my cravings for my guilty pleasure – lemon tart – and the kids have a blast helping to roll the dough into balls.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Lemon Bliss Balls are a great, kid-friendly alternative to a sugary, midday snack. Just one serving will help to keep you feeling satisfied between meals, while keeping your blood sugar in check due to the high fat and low sugar content. It may also be helpful to have these on hand for an on-the-go snack to help you avoid getting too hungry and overeating at your next meal.
