Toddler friendly bliss ball

Bliss Balls


For the balls

  • 170 g medjool dates
  • 90 g cashew nuts
  • 50 g walnuts
  • 2 tbls cocoa nibs
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 3 tbls maple syrup

For the chocolate coating

  • 50 g dates
  • 1 tbls coconut oil
  • 3 heaped tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbls maple syrup
  • 2 tbls chia seeds
  • 2 tbls water


  1. Soak chia seeds in a bowl with 8 tbsp of water and set aside for later. Place all the ball ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined and sticking together. If you find the mixture too dry add a few drops of water (don't add to much though or it will be too sticky to roll into balls). Roll into balls. I used a tablespoon to roughly measure
  2. Now place all the chocolate coating ingredients in the processor with the socked chia seeds and blend until smooth. You want the mixture to be able to coat the balls quite thickly but if the mixture is too thick add another tablespoon of water. Line a tray with baking paper. Scoop out mixture in to a small bowl. Drop a ball in and roll it around to coat it well. Place on the baking paper and fridge or freeze when complete

Recipe Notes

My recommendation is to fridge them initially so the outer coating sets, then you can pile then into a container and freeze for a few months. There is no need to defrost - eat them straight out of the freezer
