Lemon & Almond Bliss Balls

Bliss balls are another staple recipe in my house. I like to mix up a batch most weekends and have them on hand for a quick and healthy snack.

The medjool dates in this recipe are very high in natural sugars and carbohydrates so some restraint is necessary, just because these are healthy doesn’t mean you can eat 10 of them in one sitting! But they are certainly a good source of carbohydrates which is ideal of you’re looking for something to fuel your workout or aid your recovery post workout.

These also make terrific snacks for kids and fit perfectly into lunch boxes for morning tea.

Happy sprouting, baking and cooking!

Lemon & Almond Bliss Balls


Makes: 20 bliss balls

2 cups of raw almonds
20 large medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon of vanilla powder
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup of shredded coconut


Add the almonds, medjool dates, vanilla powder and lemon zest to a food processor.

Blitz for 3 minutes, you’ll know it’s ready when the mixture clumps together like a big ball of dough.

Remove from the food processor and pop into a large bowl.

Remove a small amount of the mixture and roll it into a small ball, roll this in the shredded coconut and put aside on a serving plate.

Continue this until you have used all of the mixture and you have about 20 bliss balls.

You can either serve these straight away or store them in the fridge.

They will keep for up to 2 weeks, but they are so addictive and more than likely won’t last that long!
