Hello lovelies.

The recipe for these little balls of heaven has been highly requested, and let me tell you, they are soooooo delish!!  Even my little bubba thinks so.  These bliss balls are also super healthy (bonus!) and a good alternative to sweets.

Bliss Balls (1)

What you need


You all know how terrible I am with measurements, so take this as a rough guide and if they are too sticky, add more dry ingredients, to thick then add more date paste.

  • 1 cup of almond meal
  • 1/2 cup date paste (made by boiling 1/4 cup of dates in water for about 15 mins and then whizzing in a blender until smooth
  • tbsp cranberries
  • tbsp shredded coconut
  • tbsp chia seeds
  • tsp raw cacao powder
  • coconut to roll

What to do

  1. In a food processor, add all ingredients
  2. Mix on high until well combined.  See note above – if it is too sticky then add more almond meal, too dry then add more date paste
  3. Roll into small balls and then roll in coconut
  4. Freeze until set

I like to store these bliss balls in the freezer and let them sit at room temperature for 5 minutes (if I can wait that long) before eating, but they can also be stored in the fridge or pantry.

I hope you enjoy these little bliss ball bites of amazing.  Let me know if you love them as much as I do, and also if your little kiddies are a fan too 🙂

      Thanks 🙂 If you follow my instagram you will know I am definitely not the worlds most skilled baker (more along the lines of “nailed it”), so anything easy, foolproof, and that doesn’t require baking suits me perfect! You can pretty much make up the measurements with these bliss balls and they still work EVERY.SINGLE.TIME 🙂 xx

      Thanks Lucy, and thanks for having me on your Fabulous Foodie Fridays! What a great link up idea. I’m pretty sure I dreamed about all the chocolate-y goodness after looking through the recipes that are featured last night! xx

      Thanks Lauren, Me too! I always feel a little naughty when I give my wee man his second bliss ball, but there really isn’t anything bad about them!

  1. […] I have to say that I LOVE seeing others enjoy my posts, so my favourite posts so far are probably the ones that seem to be enjoyed by most.  Our wedding day was a clear winner, but then who doesn’t like weddings!  And my healthy bliss balls have been a long-standing blog pleaser!  I always find people come back to that one!
