Bliss Balls Recipe

Then try this homemade recipe with natural sugar and raw products :

Total time: 10 mins + 30 mins chilling time
Serves : 20 balls
Dietary preferences: Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy-free, Gluten-free

Ingredients :

  • 12 medjool dates
  • 10 dried apricots
  • As topping I choose half a handful each of sesame seeds, chopped pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, chia seeds and puffed amaranth.

Method : 

  1. Blend the dates and apricots until well combined and mixture forms a thick paste-like consistency.
  2. Place the seeds in several bowls.
  3. Since this “dough” is super sticky use some coconut oil to coat your hands before rolling the balls (1 tbsp of mixture). Otherwise it will stick to your hands!
  4. Now you can coat the balls with coconut flakes or with seeds of your choice.
  5. Put the bliss balls in the fridge for 30 minutes and then enjoy ! Cooled and well- closed in a box they keep for at least 2 weeks.
