Bliss Balls Recipe With Mulberries
This bliss balls recipe is very easy to make in just 5 minutes! I love to make healthy bliss balls, as they are a great snack and can be taken to work/school or on travels. I also call these bliss balls “power balls” as I feel they deliver instant power when I eat them.
They contain only wholesome ingredients, healthy carbs, fats and protein, no processed ingredients and no refined sugar! These vegan bliss balls don’t require baking and they can be made fully raw. They are furthermore gluten-free and nut-free.
5-Minute Bliss Balls Recipe
I want to live a healthy lifestyle, that’s why I avoid processed food as much as possible and make all of my desserts myself. I have never seen a healthy dessert in a supermarket here, so I make my own cakes, cupcakes, raw cakes, crepes, brownies, pancakes, etc.
If you are new to making your own desserts and believe that it’s complicated to make a healthy treat, then try this easy bliss balls recipe.
This is without a doubt the easiest recipe on my page, as it contains only 5 ingredients which just have to be processed in a food processor and rolled into balls between your hands. That’s it, you are done in 5 minutes, I am not kidding.
It’s a perfect vegan snack for busy moms/families. And I promise your kids will love them!
At first, they will look like the balls in the next picture, pure without any coating. You can, of course, make them look fancy and roll them in cocoa powder, matcha powder, maqui berry powder or even melted chocolate.
Just imagine to eat delicious chocolate bliss balls, sounds amazing right?! Or what about peanut butter bliss balls? Simply add some peanut butter to the dough and voila (you will need to use more oats if you add peanut butter)!
I rolled the vegan bliss balls in shredded unsweetened coconut to make coconut bliss balls because I just love coconut! Use Medjool dates to make salted caramel bliss balls!
Bliss Balls Recipe With Wholesome Ingredients
This bliss balls recipe contains only healthy ingredients. Such as dried mulberries which are high in Vitamin C, Iron, and Calcium. To learn more about the health benefits of mulberries, check out this informative article.
I added sunflower seeds instead of nuts. They contain lots of Vitamin E, Copper, Vitamin B1, B3, B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Selenium, Zinc, and protein.
Dates will deliver instant energy as they contain healthy carbs and oats are high in Manganese.
One bliss ball contains about 75-80 kcal, just 3-4 g fat and about 2-3 g of protein (depends on how big you roll the balls).
Can You Make Bliss Balls Without Dates?
Absolutely! Simply use any other dried fruit instead, for example, dried figs, dried apricots, etc. I made apricot bliss balls once and loved the result!
Can You Leave Out The Mulberries?
Yes, you can. The dried mulberries add some sweetness, so you will need to increase the amount of dried fruit but you will also need to add more seeds/nuts. I would recommend to double the amount of dates and sunflower seeds (or nuts of choice) and use the other ingredients as stated in the recipe.
How To Freeze Bliss Balls?
I often double the recipe and freeze leftovers in zip-lock bags! Let them thaw for 30 minutes before you serve them.
To Sum It Up, These No-Bake Bliss Balls Are:
- Refined sugar-free
- Easy to make

Bliss balls recipe
- Process all ingredients except the dates and the vanilla extract in a food processor for about 10-20 seconds.
- Add the dates and the vanilla extract, blend again until the mixture holds together when you press it between your fingers. If it's too dry add a few more dates.
- Use about 1 tbsp of the mixture to roll a ball between your hands. Continue until no dough is left (recipe makes about 10 balls).
- I rolled the balls in desiccated coconut, but you can roll them in cocoa powder, matcha powder, powdered sugar, cinnamon or maqui berry powder.
- Store in the fridge. Enjoy!
- You can use desiccated coconut (shredded unsweetened coconut) or almonds (or any other nuts of choice) instead of sunflower seeds.
