Choco & Nuts Bliss Balls

45 Minutes

25 Servings

Low carb + GF

Requires: Food Processor

Bliss balls – a delish snack for the entire family. This recipe is obviously sugar free, but you will be surprised how sweet they taste naturally! The combo of walnuts, almonds and cashews means they’re packed with nutrients. I find it’s a great way to get kids to eat some nuts and it’s a great snack for school lunches (assuming your school allows nuts). Bliss balls take a bit of time to make, so I like making them in large batches as they last well in the fridge for 4-5 days. That’s Assuming you don’t have hungry family members that eat them all in 2 days!


  • 2 cups raw almonds 

  • 1 cup raw cashews 

  • 1 cup raw walnuts 

  • 2 tbsp cacao powder                                                      

  • ½ tsp natural vanilla extract 

  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup 

  • ½ cup melted coconut oil (4  heaped tbsp of solid coconut oil) 

  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut to coat the bliss balls


  1. In a food processor, place all the nuts and shred until fine. This can take a couple of minutes. 

  2. Add the cacao powder and shred a little more. 

  3. Add the vanilla, honey and coconut oil, and shred again until the mix forms a (relatively consistent) paste In a small bowl, add the shredded coconut and set aside. 

  4. Now for the fun – making the bliss balls. Grab some of the mix and shape small balls (roughly 2cm diameter), then roll each one in the shredded coconut.

  5. Put the finished bliss balls in a container and place in the fridge to set for about 1 hour.

Tip: These bliss balls can be stored in the fridge on an airtight container for a week. They are great snack for lunch boxes and for when you feel like having a treat. Enjoy!
