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.
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.
