This raspberry, almond and coconut bliss ball recipe is so easy to make. They only need five ingredients and take just five minutes to make. My kids absolutely love them and feel like they’re getting a real treat. I’m happy too because I know they’re full of healthy, natural ingredients.
Bliss balls, energy bites, raw truffles – whatever you call them these little balls of goodness they make a delicious and healthy snack. My kids have loved every version of bliss balls that I’ve made so far. I love making these because as my seven year old doesn’t eat any fruit this is a great way of getting him to eat some. He knows that there’s raw fruit in these as he’s helped me make them before but he doesn’t mind.
I’ll need to come up with some new ideas for energy balls and similar healthy snacks soon that don’t contain nuts. R, 7, is going to be having a packed lunch next year and our school is nut free due to allergies. Up until now he’s had a hot meal at school, which has been free. After Year 2 however we’d have to pay for him to continue having a hot meal at school. I’d gladly do this but he’s been lobbying hard for a packed lunch and so I have decided to give it a go. It’s going to be challenging as there are so many things that he won’t eat but he’s agreed to try a few new things. He won’t be getting jam sandwiches every day that’s for sure!
Here’s how to make raspberry, almond and coconut bliss balls:
- 100g raspberries
- 175g dates
- 100g oats
- 50g ground almonds
- 50g desiccated coconut
- Place the raspberries, dates, oats and ground almonds in a food processor.
- Pulse until well combined.
- Roll into balls with the palm of your hands.
- Dip each ball into the desiccated coconut and roll until covered.

- These can be eaten straight away but I prefer them when they've been in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Store in the fridge.
