Tips for making these Healthy Nut-Free Gluten-Free Vegan Coconut Bliss Balls made with sunflower seeds:

  • If you do not have a food processor or blender, you can grind the sunflower seeds as smoothly as you can with a mortar and pestle or you can use this sunflower ‘sun’ butter and then hand mix all of the ingredients until as smooth as possible.

  • For a keto or sugar-free version, you can omit the maple syrup altogether or use a low-carb sugar-free sweetener such as this monk fruit syrup for a still-tasty treat.

  • Due to the unique nature of coconut flour, I do not recommend replacing it with anything else.

  • You can replace the chia seeds with soaked flax seeds instead if you prefer.

  • These energy balls taste great with cinnamon instead of nutmeg if you would prefer.

  • You can use shredded instead of flaked coconut for similar results.

  • You can use pumpkin seeds instead of sunflower seeds for another nut-free alternative.
