Bliss balls are a great snack when consumed in moderation because they are a sweet treat, easy to make, have no nasties like many of the more traditional sweet snacks and keep well in both the fridge and freezer. These bliss balls (like all of my bliss ball recipes) have minimal ingredients so making them isn’t tedious. Having a high powered food processor or blender means that making bliss balls is super easy, however don’t be discouraged if you dont have one. You can still make these with a normal blender it will just take a little more patience when blending up the ingredients (and maybe a few times of stopping the motor to move the mixture around a little bit). Have fun and enjoy the result – having a fridge stocked full of super sweet and yummy snacks!
Makes 10 – VG, DF
Serving size = 1- 2 balls
5 slices dried peaches (each slice is roughly 1/2 peach)
2 medjool dates
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 raw cashews
2 tbsp. coconut oil
- Soak the cashews in water for 30 minutes (they can be left for up to a few hours if that works into your schedule better than 30 minutes). Strain them and rinse before using in mixture.
- Take the seed out of the medjool dates, and add with all other ingredients into a high powered food processor.
- Use a teaspoon to scoop out enough mixture to roll/form into a small ball. The mixture will make 10 balls (or more if you make them smaller).
- Place on a baking tray and put in the fridge to set for roughly 30-40 minutes, then enjoy!
- I am a big believer in purchasing ingredients where I can from bulk food stores, not only does it reduce your use of plastic and pre-packaged containers that are bas for the enironment, but also food. You only buy what you need which also means it is more financially economical for you. I go to my local Source Bulk Foods.
