Bliss Ball Recipe

…or “Blisscuits”, as my 2 year old calls them.

When it comes to bliss balls (or blisscuits), a trap for young players is the amount of sugar they contain. Yep, date sugar, or coconut sugar or honey is better than white processed sugar, but it is all still sugar. Sugar itself isn’t ‘bad’, it is just that we tend to eat far too much of it, and it is quite often hidden in foods.

So my bliss ball recipe below is low in sugar, and packed with nutrients. But as with most things, moderation is the key. Yes they are healthy and really yummy, but just make sure you keep them for treats.  It’s SO easy when you are exhausted and stressed to just reach for the bliss balls instead of sitting down to a proper lunch! I’m speaking from personal experience here – lunch yesterday was 4 bliss balls and a cup of tea.

Bliss Ball Recipe

Dry Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup LSA
  • 1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut
  • 1/2 cup Almond Meal
  • 1 TBSP Hemp Seeds
  • 1 TBSP Psyllium Husks
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP Raw Cacao
  • Pinch of sea salt / pink Himalayan salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 TBSP Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 – 1 TSP Date Paste
  • 1 TBSP Tahini


  • More desiccated coconut, or raw cacao powder, sprinkled on a small plate, ready to roll your bliss balls into.
  1. Add dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix.
  2. Add wet ingredients and mix with your hands.
  3. Squish into little balls (you will need to really press the mix firmly to make it stick into the balls) and roll in toppings if you want.
  4. You can eat them straight away, but I prefer to wait until the have hardened up a bit in the fridge.
