Berry bliss balls are a handy little snack to have in the freezer. They are raw and made with all good things: berries, coconut, oats, chia seeds and couple of dates for sweetness – that’s it!
They require no cooking, just pulse in a food processor and roll into balls – get the kids to help…

That’s awesome that these are nut free. The colour of them is just incredible.
Thanks very much Danielle, yes nut free is always a good idea for school lunch boxes.
These are the most wonderful colour and the flavours sound delicious!
Thanks Brian, the colour is all natural from the berries isn’t it great!
My son and I love anytime treats and I know we’ll love your Berry Bliss Balls !
Great to hear Linda, they are such as handy little treat to have on hand.
Do the oats not need to be cooked at all?
Hi, no need to cook the oats. Just pop them in raw. 😊

What a delicious snack idea, so full of flavour! Definitely need to make a batch of these!
These look so delicious!
These look and sound perfect but could these be made without dates?
Hi Kimberly, I haven’t tried it without the dates but seeing as there are so few in the recipe I would think it would be fine without. Let me know how you go. xx
Since the berries are frozen, does it get mushy by lunchtime in their lunchbox? Should it be room temp or frozen when served?
Hey Sharte, no mushiness at all. They will be thawed by lunchtime but still hold their shape.
Hi Cristie, I meal prep every Sunday afternoon ready for the work/school week. I’m wondering if these can be frozen and just thawed for later or how long they will last in an air-tight container in the fridge?
Hi Kate, because they use fresh fruit only a few days in the fridge. I would suggest freezing and then popping them in your lunchbox the morning of. They will thaw but still hold their shape.
I made these last night using organic frozen blueberries and they were a hit with my 19 month old!
The mix was quite crumbly but the balls firmed up beautifully after some time in the fridge. I saved some for morning snack and stored the rest in the freezer as you recommended. Thank you for this quick and delicious recipe!
Thanks for letting me know Cristel, I’m happy your little one loved them. xx
We love them. We made rainbow colors. Cherry for red. Blackberry for purple. Blueberry for blue. Thinking of trying frozen pineapple for yellow or banana. Have you found a way to make the oat free?
Fantastic idea Kristy. I’m going to try that next time. My little guy would love it. You could substitute the oats with nuts.
Hi anything that I can use to substitute coconut? Thank you. 😊
Hi Michele, you could try almond meal if you have no issue with using nuts.
