Pro Tips

  • These bliss balls get very little sweetness from guava, so feel free to replace coconut oil with honey or maple syrup to make them sweeter.
  • Replace guava with your favorite fruit.
  • If the mixture seems to dry add more coconut oil. If the mixture is too wet, add more ground almonds.
