Bliss Balls

Nut & Date Bliss balls


Total Time: 40 min


1 c. Puffed Buckwheat/Amaranth/Brown rice/Spelt or Quinoa (Australian grown)

1 c. of Almonds

1/2 c. Pepitas or Sunflower seeds

2 Tbsp of Chia Seeds

1 c. of Medjool Dates, with seeds removed

1/4 c of Hemp seeds (replace with Sunflower if you don’t have)

3 Tbsp Rice Malt Syrup – or other sweetener of choice – Maple Syrup is a goodie

2 Tbsp melted Coconut Oil

Sesame seeds & Shredded Coconut for rolling


  1. Blend the puffed Buckwheat, Pepitas/Sunflower seeds & Almonds into the food processor. When they are chopped roughly set aside in another bowl. I like a bit of texture in mine but you might fancy them chopped finer.

  2. Pop the Dates in the processor & pulse until they are roughly chopped.

  3. Add the dry ingredients back in & with the processor on slow, add the Rice Malt syrup followed by the Hemp seeds until it mixed through. The mixture should be moist & form a nice ball when rolled. If the balls don’t stick add a little more of the wet ingredients, if too sticky a little more of the dry stuff…simple!

  4. With wet hands roll them into small balls about 25g, 2 or two bites worth.

  5. Lastly roll half the balls in the sesame seeds & half in the coconut, I find it quicker & less messy to roll them up first & dip later.

  6. Pop them on a flat plate & into the fridge for a few hours to firm up before storing them in your favourite jar.
