No Blend Lemon Bliss Balls


Sponsored by Woolworths

I have had a bit of time since Woolworths first launched Guide to Goodness to familiarise myself with the site and get a good understanding of exactly what it is all about. I am loving it. I think it is a great concept.

Just like Wholefood Simply, The Guide to Goodness is dedicated to easing the transition to whole foods and to inspiring those who are already there.

Each month Macro are introducing a new ingredient to the website. A simple ingredient complete with a brief background, cooking instructions and delicious recipes. This really is a perfect hub for those who are transitioning to whole foods as well and anyone who is already on the real food road.

The Guide to Goodness and Wholefood Simply teamed up because we both believe that healthy living doesn’t need to be complex, that often using fewer, simpler ingredients leads to exceptional results. These No Blend Lemon Bliss Balls are no exception. I hope you enjoy them, be sure to let me know.

    These sound yummy! Could you replace the almond meal with coconut flour to make it nut free?

    • I haven’t tried that. I wouldn’t use as much and perhaps increase the coconut. I would love to hear how you go. x

    Bianca, I haven’t been able to get the Macro Coconut Milk or Cream for quite a few months from Woolworths. Would you happen to know what is the problem?
    Thanks for this recipe, I’m about to give it a try!

    • I am sorry I do not know what has happened there. If I hear anything I will be sure to get back to you. x

  • I am only just discovering that you are one of the very few raw food bloggers that don’t add dates to everything! I am so grateful as I cannot eat dates due to my fructose malabsorption! Very happy follower 🙂

    • Thank YOU. If you would like to send me a PM I am happy to send you through a list of all of date free recipes. I have been meaning to add it into a category on the website but have not yet got to that! Thanks again for your feedback. Bianca

    Have just made these delicious little bite sized balls as I had two lemons I wanted to use up. So delicious they are and soooo good for you.

    I did add a little coconut flour to mine, maybe a tablespoon which I feel may have enhanced the flavor and texture. Next time I might add a little cinnamon or spice. Thank you Bianca. You’re amazing ♡

    • Perfect!!!! Thank YOU!! I really appreciate the feedback and I am glad you enjoyed them. x

    I just made these to try something different from the usual healthy bliss balls we make and found them to be very lemony (I did weigh the lemons and only ended up using 1 because mine were so big). We found them to be very coco-nutty also. Did anyone else find this? I have tried a few of your other recipes and enjoyed them but unfortunately didn’t like these = (

    • I am sorry you didn’t enjoy them. Have you tried the other Lemon Bliss Balls that are on the site? They are very popular. I am glad you have found other recipes that you enjoy and I really appreciate the feedback. x

      Lucky you! I ended up using 3 medium sized lemons and whilst they smelt lemony, they were sadly bland with barely any lemon flavour. So disapointed 🙁

      • I am sorry you didn’t enjoy them. You might prefer our blended lemon bliss balls, the recipe is also on the website.
