Recipe for Bliss Balls

Bliss balls are currently my favourite easy-to-make healthy snack for munching between teaching Yoga sessions!image

There are loads of recipes around the net for bliss balls.  You can experiment with different nuts & seeds, and you can make these ones without oats, or with dried berries instead of cocao. They’re highly adaptable & fun for kids to make too.

To make 15 Bliss balls:

1 cup medjool dates, soaked in water for 15 minutes and then drained.

1 & a half cups of nuts (cashews add sweetness & almonds or hazelnuts are nice to mix in too).

1/2 cup oats

1/3 cup coconut paste

1/2 cup cacao powder

2 tablespoons coconut oil

Blend everything in a food processor (the nuts & oats can be blended a bit on their own first for better consistency).

Shape into balls and roll in seeds of your choice e.g. chia seeds, sesame seeds, or even finely shredded coconut instead.

I expect they’d keep in the fridge for at least a week or even two but I wouldn’t know because they never survive that long!

  1. I always make up a big batch mixing up the contents…spirulina, goji berries, cacao nibs, hemp protein, bee pollen…anything I have in the cupboard and then keep them in the freezer. I use coconut oil instead of the paste but haven’t tried them with oats so that will be for my next batch! Thanks!:)
