Keto Salted Caramel Bliss Balls
Keto Salted Caramel Bliss Balls
Wait until you try these deliciously healthy Keto Salted Caramel Bliss Balls. Sugar free and low in carbs, you are definitely going to want to bookmark this recipe. These healthy bliss balls are also really simple to make. Keep a stash in the fridge or the freezer so you always have a keto friendly snack on hand. I particularly enjoy one with a cup of coffee.
You can use any sweetener in this recipe without any issues. While I have used a monk fruit blend in the featured recipe, erythritol, stevia, monk fruit, coconut sugar or even regular sugar can be used in it’s place. The reason I love to use monk fruit blend is because is that it is a little bulky, has zero impact on blood sugar levels and it tastes like sugar wiht no aftertaste. Make sure you don’t overcook your sweetener with the butter or you can alter the texture of the mixture.
SOME SIMPLE VARIATIONS
Keto Salted Caramel Bliss Balls features Sweetleaf Caramel Stevia Drops, that have a been featuring quite a lot in my recipes lately because they taste so amazing. If you don’t have any on hand, you can add a whole teaspoonful of vanilla extract. The process of melting the butter with the sweetener also adds to the caramel flavor of these bliss balls, so you can get by without adding the drops if you need to. I highly recommend that you try to source some if you can though.
One of my favorite variations to Keto Salted Caramel Bliss Balls is to place a macadamia or a pistachio in the middle of each bliss ball. OMG…you really have to try these to see why I love them so much.
