I hope you will enjoy these nut free vegan bliss balls to make in December in the lead up to Christmas for a little healthy Christmas-themed treat.

I try to limit unhealthy treats for my children in the lead-up to Christmas. As it can really be a month filled with sugar and chocolate for children. And as much as I want them to have fun memories I also want to make sure they stay healthy.

I am not the fun police and I do allow treats but more so on special days than the whole month leading up to Christmas!
