Quick & easy satisfying chocoloate orange raw balls

Who doesn’t like the chocolate orange combo? Well, not me as a child, but I decided to give it another try. If I may say it myself, it turned out pretty darn good too. They’re super chocolately with a fresh touch of orange. You can also substitute the orange zest with other citrus zests to give your bliss balls a different twist.

These bites are raw and made with whole food ingredients. They’re super good for snacking, or for when you feel like having something to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Enjoy!
