Bliss balls are so easy to make, no cooking and no lengthy preparation are required.
Simply combine all ingredients and then roll into small balls. The balls are nutrient dense foods rich in minerals, good fats and fibre. 2-3 balls per day will satisfy most people even those who crave sweets!
All recipes presented in this post are gluten free, high in good quality protein and sweetened with raw honey rather than dates.
Here are my top 5 favourite bliss balls recipes tried and tested many times over!
Enjoy them as healthy and delicious treats as snacks or desserts.
Tahini Bliss Balls
- 1 cup of rolled GF oats (check the label to make sure oats are marked gluten free)
- 1/2 cup of tahini
- 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
- 2 – 4 tablespoons of honey
Place all the ingredients except for the chopped walnuts in a blender and process until smooth. Roll the mixture with your hands into small balls. Then pour the walnuts on a chopping board and coat the balls in walnut pieces. Place the balls on a plate and refrigerate until hard. Keep in the fridge for up to a week.
Chocolate Bliss Balls
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds (grind them well in the coffee grinder)
- 1 tablespoon chopped sunflower seeds
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon boiling water
Mix together all ingredients, add more water if needed for better consistency / ‘stickiness’. If needed, place the mixture in the fridge for an hour to set. Roll teaspoons of the mixture into balls.
Coat the balls in the desiccated coconut or cocoa powder (you can make two varieties at the same time!) and place back in the fridge to harden. Have 2-3 per day. The balls will keep in the fridge for a week.
