Chocolate and Nut Bliss Balls

This is a date-based raw treat that you can whip up in ten minutes and can keep in the fridge for up to a week. Great to have on hand for the kids to grab a couple for their lunch box or for you to grab when the sweet craving kicks in. I can’t stress enough the importance of having things like this on hand to ensure you stay on track with your eating.
Total Time 10 minutes



  • 1 cup chopped cooking/baking dates
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 heaped tsp of cocoa powder/raw cacao
  • 3 heaped tsp quality peanut butter
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut



  • Put the dates in a saucepan with the water and heat very gently for 5 – 10 minutes until they become sticky and soft. Give them a helping
  • hand by mashing them a bit with a fork.
  • Add the cocoa, peanut butter, cinnamon and vanilla and heat briefly to activate the flavours (you may need a splash more water). Remove
  • from heat.
  • Blend the oats and coconut together in your food processor until they are the consistency of coarse flour.
  • Add this dry mix to the date mixture and combine well, then roll into balls or press into little rustic shapes. You could also press a fork
  • gently on them and turn them into cookie shapes if desired.
  • Chill for a couple of hours and they are ready to serve.
