  • Start by soaking your dates in hot water for at least 20 minutes to soften them. Pit them and set aside.
  • In a food processor / high speed blender, blend together rolled oats and cashews until fine powder forms.
  • Place in the rest of the ingredients, including the dates together with 2 tablespoons of water and blend until smooth. You might need to add more water to achieve a sticky dough consistency, a tablespoon at a time.
  • Portion out a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Repeat until the dough is all used up.
  • Let them chill in the freezer for 30 minutes and serve them up !


  • Bliss balls can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Sweetened desiccated coconut can be used in place of unsweetened.
