Nothing shouts “healthy snack” like bliss balls do.

And there’s nothing better than making your own nourishing healthy nutrient and antioxidant-rich superfood bliss balls.

These are always a hit at every party and the great thing about these is that the kids will love them.

A great way to get healthy eating is with the snacks and treats you give them.

This recipe works as a base recipe for all bliss balls.

Once you get the hang of this, it’s really easy to then start adding your own signature twist to them by boosting them with extra optional add-ons.

It also doubles as a great recipe for the kids to get involved, having fun getting all sticky and gooey yumminess all over their hands.

Here are some key health benefits of these bliss ball ingredients:

  • Tahini – (ground sesame seeds) A great source of calcium, good for growing bones
  • Raw Cacao – rich in antioxidants, magnesium and other nutrients. Keep you healthy and relaxed
  • After Midnight Dark – we use this Raw Cacao blend as it has the extra superfoods Maca and Reishi Mushroom. It is also already sweetened naturally with Xylitol, which means that you don’t need to add much more sweetener (just a tablespoon)
  • Xylitol – A sugar-free, low GI natural sweetener: that’s actually great for your gums and gut health

Ingredients (makes 20 Bliss Balls)

  • 1 cup any mixture of raw nuts and seeds – almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, anything you can get your hands on
  • ¼ cup unhulled tahini (or coconut oil)
  • ¼ cup or less of raw honey / xylitol (or any other natural sweetener)
  • ¼ cup raw organic cacao powder (you can also use our After Midnight Dark for an extra Superfood Boost – and you won’t need to add much more sweetener to this)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Coatings desiccated coconut, crushed nuts, sesame seeds
  • Optional Add-ins here you can get creative – goji berries, cacao nibs, puffed quinoa, lemon/orange zest, mint, – have fun with whatever you have in the cupboard

How to make them…

  1. Grind the nuts in a food processor.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together (except your optional coatings). If you find it’s a little dry and not sticking together, just add very small amounts of water and mix until it’s sticking better.
  3. Now the fun part! Grab a small chunk and roll them into balls! (The part the kids love!)
  4. If adding coatings, roll them in a bowl of the coating.
  5. Put them on a plate and in the freezer (5-10 minutes) to set quickly
  6. Store in fridge in an airtight container


And the best part as a parent is that you know your kids will enjoy these nourishing, non-hyperactive treats
