Salted Caramel Bliss Balls

Jump to Recipe

With no refined sugar, just natural ingredients (dates, almonds, coconut, vanilla) enhanced with a kick of salt, these healthy treats are just that, a treat; but they are also delicious flavour bombs with a delectable chewy texture and an energy booster. These are the best Bliss Balls I have made so I feel I need to shout about them. The recipe comes from Alex at It’s not Complicated, and, unusually for me, I haven’t changed a thing – they are exactly the same as in the original recipe.

I have always cooked a lot and since starting the blog, I spend even more time in the kitchen, perfecting recipes, double checking every aspect and taking photographs. I love it, but I also love cooking without the performance of blogging; I really enjoy trying out other people’s recipes and not taking dozens of pictures. When I tried this recipe, however, I realised that it is so good, I immediately made it again so I could photograph it and post it on the blog! Try them – I promise, you will not be disappointed!

How to make Salted Caramel Bliss Balls

Collect all your ingredients together:

  • dates
  • ground almonds/almond meal
  • desiccated coconut, unsweetened
  • vanilla extract
  • fine sea salt

Simply throw everything into the blender (making sure the dates have had the stones removed) and process until completely broken down and sticking together. It will take a few minutes to come together. First it will look like crumbs but keep processing and it will eventually stick together. If it doesn’t, add an extra date or two. Use a small ice cream scoop to scoop out equally sized balls

Use your hands to roll into neat balls and then dip each one is desiccated coconut.

Once made, these balls are best stored in the fridge and eaten within 2 weeks.
