  • 10 Medjool Dates seeds removed
  • ½ cup Almond Butter/Spread
  • ½ cup LSA mix Linseed, Sunflower seeds, Almonds
  • ½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Unsweetened shredded coconut


  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender
  • Blitz until a crumb has formed
  • Roll into 13 to 14 balls of equal size
  • Store in an air tight container in the fridge for upto 4 days


  1. Medjool Dates: The secret ingredient that makes these bliss balls so good is the Medjool Dates.  Medjool dates  are larger than other types of dates, they’re softer and tend to have a rich caramel like taste.  They are by far the best type of date to use as a sweetener and are best brought to room temperature before making the bliss balls. 
  2. Almond Butter/Almond Spread: Are they the same thing? Basically yes, however do try to find one that has only almonds listed on the ingredient label and there are many different varieties that have other things added.
  3. Coconut: Desicated coconut is best as it ads texture and sweetness to the balls.
  4. LSA: This is a ground up mix of three things: linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds.  It’s high in fibre and protein and is perfect for and extra energy boost in bliss balls. Its available from the baking aisle in supermarkets. Alternatively you could use Almond Meal.
  5. Ground Cinnamon: for added flavour and its one of my favourites, however feel free to experiment with other spices if you don't have this on hand. Or leave it out entirely.
  6. Cocoa Powder: For that chocolate richness that makes bliss balls sing. I love buying the unsweetened Cacao Powder yo find in the health food aisle at the supermarket as there is already heaps of sweetness from the dates and coconut.
  7. If you don't have a food processor:  Soak the dates in a little water (make sure the seeds are out).  Then, squeeze all the water out using your hands or by pressing dates into a strainer. Transfer to a a bowl and press into a paste using the back of a large dessert spoon.  Add the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and use your hands to mix together.
  8. Ways to Customise Your Bliss Balls
    • Add 2 tablespoons of orange zest before blitzing
    • For an extra hit of spice, add ¾ teaspoon of ground chilli powder
    • Change the ground cinnamon to ground ginger and add a little freshly grated ginger
    • Add 2 tablespoons of sunflower seed for extra texture
    • Hide a toasted hazelnut inside each bliss ball
    • Roll the bliss balls in match powder, or finely chopped pistachios
