Za'atar Bliss Balls

Okay, if you're like me, you love love love interesting combinations and sweet and salty, then you'll love this recipe. Personally, I'm obsessed. 

Since I started this blog, about two years ago, I wanted to create a cheesy za'atar bliss ball recipe. However, I didn't want them to be a cheese ball, so I'm still thinking of an ingredient to add to the recipe without making it sweet and at the same time making it stick together without being overly sticky. Whew, okay done rambling, let's get into the recipe.

I love having them with some Arabic coffee!
