Servings 10 balls



  • 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.
  • You can use other dried fruit such as dried figs, dried apricots, etc. instead of dates.
  • You can leave out the dried white mulberries and instead double the amount of dates and sunflower seeds.
  • Use ground nuts or seeds of choice instead of oats for a raw vegan version.
  • Recipe makes about 10 bliss balls. Nutrition facts are for one bliss ball.
