ONE GRAM

Tastes indulgent, but only has ONE gram net carbs?? Sign me up 😉 A quick calculation on MyFitnessPal.com came to 3g total carbs & 2g fiber, so 1 gram net!

And 64 cal, 6g fat, 1g protein based on 13 servings. You can make these half the size (26 servings) to slash the values even further. They are quite rich!

BUTTERY DELISH

So… there’s no CAKE in these cake balls, haha. Just a handful of real-food ingredients (like coconut and blackberries, plus a few drops of Sweet Leaf stevia) that blended together form a heavenly substance that’s better than sugar, flour and oil or butter rolled into a ball.

This buttery deliciousness comes from COCONUT BUTTER! (Did you know that blending shredded coconut in a food processor transforms it into butter? Omg, it’s so good. And WAY cheaper than store-bought.)

Throw in some blackberries, and it turns a gorgeous shade of purple! Then after you chill the dough, it lightens to lavender! Beautiful.

OBSESSION

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I have a purple obsession.. like this purple cheesecake, purple frosting, purple ice cream bars, purple tart, and purple pie! (Lol after typing all of that out I realize I may have a bit of a problem. #noshame.)

It just makes me HAPPY! And I say DO MORE OF THAT, whatever it may be. Bring more joy into your life and shine it out into this dark world we live in.

BITES OF JOY

So blend some berries and enjoy these purple bites of JOY! These are so easy to make. Blend, roll into balls, chill, SAVOR. 🙂

Honestly, it’s been kind of a LONG time since I’ve eaten a “real” cake ball, lol. Maybe like a few years? But if I dig into the deep recess of my mind, that’s what these purple bites remind me of, ha. The kind of cake balls where you mix cake with the frosting, and it’s SO rich. And then you coat it in another layer of glaze, because you can’t have naked cake!

Yep, these are similar, but so much HEALTHIER. And you won’t feel sick to your stomach from the sugar bomb. THIS one is made only with PLANTS… fruit and stevia extract.Low Carb Blackberry Cake Balls from PrettyPies.com

Instructions
To make the blackberry cake:
  1. Blend coconut flakes in a food processor for about 15-25 minutes, until liquified (scraping down the sides as needed)
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
  3. Use a small cookie scoop to make balls. Roll each scoop of dough and place on a parchment lined plate.
  4. Freeze for 15-30 minutes.
To make the glaze:
  1. Melt coconut oil in a small bowl.
  2. Add stevia and vanilla to taste.
  3. Place each ball in glaze and turn to coat. Return each ball to the parchment lined plate.
  4. Freeze until glaze has hardened (about 15 minutes.) Repeat with a second coat of glaze for a thicker coat.
  5. Optional: roll in coconut shreds instead of the glaze. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

This is the exact food processor I have used for the past 4 years and it works great. I highly recommend it.

I do not recommend frozen blackberries, since it will harden the coconut butter and may not blend.

Keep refrigerated. Do not store in the freezer or they will turn into rocks.

      Yes, to make coconut butter, blend the coconut for at least 15 minutes, until it turns liquid. Sometimes it takes me 30 minutes. It depends on the freshness of the coconut and your food processor. 🙂

  1. Leslie says:

    If you’re using store bought coconut butter (my poor old blender just can’t do this, I’ve tried), how much would you use?

    • Emily says:

      It’s approximately a scant 3/4 cup.

      Be sure to warm/soften the store bought butter first. And it may need to be stirred in the jar before scooping out. (Sometimes the oil separates)

      If you make them, let me know what you think Enjoy!

    So… once I had the coconut in the food processor i realized it said 15 Minutes! My processor could not do that. I made these anyway. I added about 1/4 cup of coconut oil and 3 tbsp butter. Squished them into balls and froze them. Probably not like what you made but they’re still pretty good. It’s surprising how the BlackBerry flavor comes through. Still a win!

    • Emily says:

      Glad you found a way to make it work! Coconut butter does take a while sometimes to get it super smooth, but it’s so much cheaper to make at home

    This looks brilliantly yummy – LOVE blackberries & never would have thought of it. Question: Can you make the coconut butter with a Vitamix blender instead of a food processor? I have the blender but no food processor… Would it be less time? 15 minutess in a vitamix might seriously cook it so just curious. Thank you!

    • Emily says:

      Thanks! Yes, a vitamix should work. It may not take as long. Just keep blending until it’s a smooth drippy liquid. Or you always can buy a jar of coconut butter too! 🙂
