Bliss Balls

Bliss balls are the perfect treat for people who cannot eat nuts.

They are nut-free, dairy-free (if you use cacao nibs), raw, vegan and pack a nutritious little energy hit.

This recipe is perfect for children with allergies which means you can send them along to school with a healthy and nourishing lunchbox treat.


1 cup of dates
1 cup of desiccated coconut
2 teaspoons of cacao
1/4 cup of cacao nibs (can use chocolate chips)
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
Rind from 2 oranges
Juice from 2 oranges
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1/4 cup of desiccated coconut (for rolling the bliss balls in)


Throw all the ingredients, apart from the extra desiccated coconut into the blender or food processor and process until the dates are fully combined. If the mixture is too dry you can add some water to ensure all the ingredients blend well.Roll into balls and sprinkle with the remaining desiccated coconut. Freeze for an hour before serving.
